LOS ANGELES, Oct. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- CaregiverChecks.com (www.caregiverchecks.com), the leader in giving families the tools to conduct high quality background checks on caregivers, would like to remind parents that Halloween is the perfect time to think about the people that are watching your children and caring for your elderly parents.
The unfortunate facts are that almost a third of all girls will be abused by the time they reach age 17. Over 10% of boys will also become victims. Most of the perpetrators are known and trusted by the families.
Alarmingly, almost half of all dementia patients suffer abuse from their caregivers.
While these facts are unsettling, there are simple, quick and effective steps a parent can take to help reduce the likelihood of their loved ones suffering from any abuse or mistreatment.
CaregiverChecks.com provides superior quality information about caregivers, in a legal, ethical and proactive manner. With CaregiverChecks.com, parents can have an in-depth look into any potential caregiver, including criminal records, fraud convictions, financial indiscretions, and other areas of concern.
Dan and Jay Kim, the husband-and-wife team that founded CaregiverChecks.com, are parents as well as technology experts. They developed CaregiverChecks.com to address the problem faced by millions of Americans everyday: The fear and uncertainty of trusting a virtual stranger for the care of those you love most.
Parents can use CaregiverChecks.com to quickly screen potential or existing caregivers, and make informed decisions about granting unfettered access to their family and their homes.
CaregiverChecks.com meets the high standards established by the Association of Premier Nanny Agencies, and is owned and operated in America (many "background check" companies are actually offshore data-mines that provide little information of value, no accountability, and cause potential liability issues).
