The well-being of IU employees and their families is of the highest priority. When you are hiring a longer-term care provider yourself through the Care.com membership service, there are best practices for safe hiring that you should be sure to follow. The Care.com website offers an extensive Safety Center of information, tips, and tools to help evaluate risk and stay savvy about safety; for example, how to make smart decisions when searching for a caregiver. For more information, please visit the Care.com Safety Center.
Care.com completes a preliminary screening of its providers. Information contained in provider profiles can be verified by background check companies sub-contracted by Care.com. Preliminary background checks must be initiated by the employee, at no cost to the employee. Learn more at Care.com’s Background Check Guide.
