Still, the few ‘rotten apples’ certainly can ruin the bunch.  But when a compassionate an experienced caregiver is lumped in with Home Care Services in Spring TXthese other individuals who commit crimes against elderly individuals, it’s not fair, is it? Nor is it fair to assume that every home care agency in the country is the same. There are numerous news stories about agencies that were committing Medicaid or Medicare fraud, neglecting clients, shuttering their doors without any notice and leaving their elderly and disabled clients in the dark without any support, and much more.

There are many thousands of agencies throughout the country and the vast majority of those truly do care about their elderly clients. Most of them were formed by an individual who wanted to improve the quality of care for seniors and disabled individuals, often because of a direct connection to somebody who required assistance in the past.

Many states regulate agencies and require them to be certified or registered. Many agencies conduct thorough interviews and check references of all potential employees. A growing number of agencies also conduct thorough background checks to find out whether a potential employee has any criminal history or other issues that could impact the quality of care they offer or place an elderly client at risk.
