Many service providers may make tall claim and promises and also offer a high price tag to convince you that they are the best service provider.

Do not take the assurances given by the service provider with its face value but make sure that they really deliver what they promise. This may take little time to find but it is worth spending that time.

- Do not hire a raw person
Make sure the person who is assigned the job of taking care of your loved one has enough experience of life and not an inexperienced person. Your loved one needs careful handling and since you are leaving them on the mercy of the care taker who should be matured enough to take care of them.
- Check the licence and insurance
It is always necessary to check the service provider has got necessary license and insurance, failing which you may get into uncomfortable situation. Make sure the person taking care of your loved one must not be dishonest and steal items from your home.
