As grandparents get ready to go holiday shopping for their kids and especially their grandchildren, balancing checkbooks and managing bank accounts can be a struggle. Even if you did not have Alzheimer’s and Dementia, looking at your budget can be overwhelming when you try to figure out what to buy without going bankrupt. The elderly are known for being vulnerable when it comes to money. You hear many stories of elder abuse involving financial exploitation from caregivers who were hired from private ads or referred by a friend who had good intentions but lack of knowledge about a caregiver’s criminal background. That’s why it’s important to hire a caregiver from a licensed, bonded and insured home care agency like A-1 Home Care in Huntington Beach. Such home care agencies are regulated by the insurance companies that bond them, which means they cannot recruit caregivers who have questionable backgrounds.
What it means to be licensed, bonded and insured
Any company like A-1 Home Care in Huntington Beach that boasts about being licensed, bonded and insured will guarantee that the services you receive are completely trustworthy and reliable. For families and their elderly loved ones, this means that if a caregiver is hired to perform daily tasks like housekeeping, meal preparation, and money management, then the caregiver was “good enough” to be insured by the home care agency’s insurance company. Before a caregiver can enter your home, A-1 Home Care must perform an extensive criminal background check, DMV check and other reference checks before the caregiver, home health aide, certified nurse aide or companion is able to enter your home. If anything bad happens, the insurance company will compensate you for the losses.
