Background Checks on Independent Caregivers

The American Stroke Association has a site on doing background checks when hiring an independent caregiver. They explain that background checks can include criminal background checks at the state and federal level, checking driving records, checking for auto insurance, and perhaps a credit check.

Background and reference checks are some of the things a caregiver agency can do. However, if you hire an independent caregiver, which may cost less, the checking and references will be important steps for you to take.

Other issues when you hire an independent caregiver include payroll, taxes, and liability, and you can check with an attorney or an accountant for advice on these.

There are also services available and investigators who can do the checks for you.
