Caregiver Theft: What You Need To Know

Caregiver Theft: What You Need To KnowHow To Avoid Caregiver Theft

When you welcome a caregiver into your home, you give them an immense amount of trust. Not only are you allowing that person into your house and giving him or her access to all of your personal possessions, you are also relying on him or her to help you maintain your quality of life.

That is why it is especially disconcerting when a caregiver commits theft. Fortunately, there are some steps you can take to avoid this scenario.

Individuals, if you will not be hiring your caregiver through an agency, make sure you do thorough homework. First, make sure that any caregiver your hire has gone through a background test. Also, secure multiple references for him or her. If your caregiver cannot readily supply a handful of references, that should be a red flag.

Agencies, make sure your theft policy is clearly defined and communicated to your staff. Also, ensure your background check process is thorough and your bonding policy is up to date.
