How to Prepare Your Home for Service Providers
Before opening your home to any service provider, including in-home caregivers, you should take a few steps to make sure that you protect yourself and the caregiver. Taking these steps does not demonstrate a lack of trust in the provider, nor does it mean that they are not trustworthy. It is simply logical to make sure that you look after your assets. You should place any of the following items in a safety deposit box or other secure location:
-Irreplaceable or sentimental items
-Small family heirlooms
Let family members know that you have removed these items from the house and that they are safe. By taking these simple steps, you can make sure that you, your family, and your caregiver do not have to face the problems that arise when precious items are misplaced.
