Caregiver Background Checks

Caregiver Background Checks

Pre-employment background screenings are a fact of life in today’s workplace, and nowhere is this more apparent than in caregiver fields. When choosing a caregiver, whether you need a nanny, an adult or senior care specialist, pet sitter, housekeeper, or something different for your own unique situation, it’s important that you be able to trust the person or persons you’re employing. Aside from the significant cost investment that comes with these services, you’re placing your property, or more worryingly the health and safety of your loved ones, in the hands of a stranger.

The Importance of In-Depth Background Checks for Caregivers

Our caregiver background checks give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’re getting the very best care possible for your loved one, pet, or property. Our investigators routinely find things that are missed by a standard online records check, or even in-depth criminal background checks. Our experts can vet potential caregivers to a degree that online record look-up services simply can’t match. Frankly, we don’t put much stock in anonymous services that provide background checks for $20, and only search easy-to-find public records.

Why Use Us Instead of an Online-Only Service?

When our investigators look into a potential caregiver’s background, we bring the same integrity and transparency to the table that you’ll find in all of our work. Instead of a simple public records inquiry, we delve deep into an applicant’s background via the following:

  • Social Security Verification
  • Citizenship Verification
  • State District Court Criminal Searches
  • Federal District Court Criminal Searches
  • Education Verification
  • Previous Employment Verification
  • Professional Certificate Verification
  • Driving Record
  • Consumer Credit Report
  • Bankruptcy/ Lien Reports
  • Federal District Civil Litigation Records

We can also target other aspects of a caregiver’s background as needed, such as looking for any previous customer complaints or allegations of malfeasance. Unlike other anonymous services or unlicensed investigators, we can provide you with a transparent look at our process and methodology so that you can verify the accuracy of our assessment. We put our reputation on the line with every customer, and you get the same level of professionalism, discretion, and attention to detail whether you need one background check or one hundred.

Handling Background Checks as a Caregiver

If you’re a caregiver and you’re looking to either distinguish yourself from other applicants, or you maybe you want to make sure nothing about your past record could trip you up during the application process, it can be beneficial to run a background check on yourself. Obviously, if you’re a convicted felon or have other similar black spots on your record, you need to think long and hard about applying for any type of caregiver position, but maybe you want to make sure there’s nothing online about you that might raise a red flag, like a complaint from a previous employer you didn’t know about, or maybe something in your credit history or driving record that you might have forgotten about. If you think this might be the case, or you just want to show off your spotless record, having access to your own in-depth background check report can be extremely helpful.
