*contributed collaborative content

When we entrust the care of our elder relatives to professional carers, you would be right to expect them to receive the best care possible for the money you pay. Caregivers have usually gone under rigorous scrutiny with interviews, assessments, and background checks prior to starting on a job in a care home or hospital.
