LOS ANGELES, Oct. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- CaregiverChecks.com (www.caregiverchecks.com), has launched a new online service that gives people the ability to conduct high quality background checks nationwide on potential caregivers, including nannies, babysitters, tutors, instructors, and individuals providing elder care.
Here are some startling facts:
- 1-in-3 girls and 1-in-7 boys will be sexually abused before the age of 17.
- 90% of children who are victims of sexual abuse know their abuser, and 60% of perpetrators are non-relative acquaintances, such as a nanny.
- 47% of patients with dementia have suffered abuse from their caregivers.
When Dan Kim, the Founder and CEO of Veritable Screening – one of the preeminent employee background check companies in the nation - and his wife Jay had children, they came to understand first-hand what people all across America face everyday: The fear and uncertainty of trusting a virtual stranger for the care of those you love most.
They discovered that there were only limited ways to conduct background checks on caregivers that met the standards established by the Association of Premier Nanny Agencies (APNA) or matched the level of diligence Veritable's corporate clients did on potential employees. Some websites only offered background checks for caregivers already registered on their site. Some background check companies only offered database-only searches, which had limited information and were usually illegal to use for employment purposes - exposing whomever ran the check to potential liability.
They also found that many screening companies sent personal information to low-cost, offshore operations where U.S. privacy laws couldn't be enforced.
They decided to form CaregiverChecks.com to give families a reliable and powerful tool to help screen individuals and provide important background information that could lead to making better, more informed decisions about whom to trust with the care of those they love most.
CaregiverChecks.com is a USA-owned and operated company. All of its employees and its corporate offices are here in America. The CEO answers his own phone.
As a division Veritable Screening, Caregiverchecks.com leverages the operations and expertise of its parent to ensure that its background checks are both accurate and compliant with existing regulations, which can differ from state to state.
The company has also partnered with Pattie Fitzgerald of Safely Ever After, Inc., a nationally known child safety expert, speaker and author, to develop "Today's Best Child Safety Tips," a live presentation that is perfect for television news programs and large community and civic events.
