- Ask about background checks
Whenever you are hiring from an agency, be sure to enquire whether the background checks are done scrupulously. Since you are looking for a caregiver for your family member you have the right to know everything about the person that would be spending the maximum time with him.
- Check their references
As it is obvious you would interview the person before finalizing him, you should also conduct your own background research. Contacting his previous clients to get a reference will give clarity on his working style as well as capabilities.
- Sign an employment contract
Making the person selected, sign a contract which includes a detailed job description, hours allotted, and the payment is very necessary. It might not be very complicated but will help you if any legal or otherwise problem crop up in the future.
