A caregiver background check is a simple process worth the time and effort

The criminal check and driving record applications can be filled out and submitted for review at a local police station.

It requires only basic information such name, sex, and date of birth of the potential caregiver. (i.e. Social Insurance/Security  number, maiden name). It may take some time to process the criminal background check and come with a cost.
