In-home care is one of the fastest growing sectors in the healthcare industry, since 2008 it has grown roughly 60 percent. When considering in-home health care for yourself or for a loved one, consider the risks with allowing someone frequent access to the home.
There are scam artists looking for nothing other than to gain access to a home to either harm someone financially, steal property, or harm someone physically. Those people who wish to harm someone often have fake nursing badges, identification in general, wear medical related clothing, or even have fake manager/supervisors. It is important to complete a thorough background check on anyone who is being considered as a healthcare provider.
