I ask this due to the theft in my home. Caring.com, etc determines the agency is the best of the best. As a poster, are we allowed to share an experience so others are not pushed in the wrong direction.


Thanks.

I worked for a non-profit Visiting Nurse Assoc. We had a list of CNAs and LPNs looking for in home work. On the top of the list we mentioned that these people are not our employees and as such are not Vetted by us. Its up to the client hiring these people to do their own background check. I wonder if caring has that same disclaimer.

Just an opinion here, unless you proved the aide stole from you, it might be considered slander to post a negative experience without it. I think any agency hiring healthcare workers should do background checks and bond their workers. But bonding is expensive. At my VNA, we are subsidized by the Township so the police dept did our background checks me included.

Good morning Stacy,
When families use a form on the AgingCare site to request help finding in-home care, they are contacted by a care advisor. Based on matching the location and the senior's care needs, agencies in good standing with current state licensing are referred to the family. Ultimately it is up to the family to choose from the referred agencies they feel are the best fit for care. Part of the families vetting process may be "word of mouth," recommendations from others in the community and reviews. Many online resources allow for families to leave reviews, including AgingCare. If AgingCare offers the agency you have contracted with, feel free to leave a review for others to read in their decision making process.

Alva, they read posts, monitor and edit. All people here should know if they are allowed to write a review. If not, is this a possibility going forward.

Nothing against AC, just a question.

No, I understand. I wasn't aware they read all of our questions and comments. I am gonna be more careful! (Only kidding). Good luck. And no, I understand it is nothing against AgingCare, just a question you have.

Alva, no offense here, but I am trying to find out if there is a review or rating system which does apply to all posters.

Ah, so you have the contact? Why not ask them. I am not certain AC reads out posts and threads, but honestly I don't know if they do or don't. Just saying they might miss this. And no, of course no offense. None taken.

Stacy, there is a way to contact AgingCare but I'm not sure what it is; I saw it once looking through the activities page, but cannot remember.
I am hoping that Monday you filed a report with the police.
You have so many problems going on due to this woman you describe as an unwanted and non-paying tenant, including her family bringing covid-19 directly into your home and to you.
Please be sure to keep a diary with names, dates, and etc. There may be rules about you turning out your tenant in covid times, but I doubt you have to have caregivers an agency ADMITTED to you are not vetted coming and going in your home at all hours of the day or night. I myself would be frightened, and I would not be allowing them on my premises esp if I lived alone. If caregivers weren't allowed access into your home, then the POA could decide if this woman can remain living with you while requiring caregivers.
Good luck finding that contact form. Anyone else knows how to access it hope they give you the info.
One more thing that may work to be contacted re your question would be to report your own remark. I often do that as I report ads or repetitive thread I simple make a post that says "reporting this post to see if ad has been approved." AgingCare seems fast on the uptake on these, and will often keep the post and say they did speak with the poster, and the thread is fine. OR the thread disappears.
