    BOCA RATON, FL, January 25, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Lisa Kaufman has long been advocating for changes to the screening procedures for providers of home care for Boca Raton. And when she sets her mind to something, that something is likely to get accomplished.

The trouble with the current licensing process is that there are over 2,000 practicing care organizations that are not required to be licensed by the state, such as those offering home care for Boca Raton. As a result, there is no guarantee that the provider one chooses for one's elderly or infirm loved one has undergone a criminal background check and screening. Without such a screening process, it is impossible to know the type of person one is allowing into a loved one's home and bedroom. Home care for Boca Raton is therefore something of a guessing game, something which Lisa Kaufman is working to see changed.

As Lisa Kaufman owned company, Boca Home Care, which provides home care for Boca Raton residents, she ensures that her employees undergo mandatory screening procedures and background checks that ensure they are reliable providers of health care in the home setting. She is also a member of a national accreditation board for home health care providers that ranks companies on a variety of metrics, including criminal background checks and screenings for employees.

"Florida needs to get more serious about its screening process both for the health and safety of those in need of care and for the security of loved ones and family members," Lisa Kaufman was quoted as saying. "The policies in place are good where they work, but are currently inadequate to cover the many different types of home care for Boca Raton currently in operation. Until something is done people can never be 100% sure they are letting the right people into their homes and into the homes of their vulnerable loved ones."

Kaufman's own experience in the industry providing home care for Boca Raton has taught her that most practitioners are working with integrity, but unless standards are implemented across the board, wayward agencies could slip through the cracks. And it doesn't take more than one or two agencies operating with sinister motives to wreak untold havoc in the community of those providing home care for Boca Raton and throughout the industry. Since Lisa Kaufman is such a believer in the power and efficacy of home care for Boca Raton, she works hard to ensure that the industry is protected and that those it serves are protected under the law, as well.

"State-mandated diligence is a necessary reality in a field where caregivers are in charge of such vulnerable people," Lisa Kaufman was quoted as saying. "People who need assistance in performing basic life functions also need protection when it comes to who we are allowing into the home and into the lives of these people."

Lisa Kaufman has actually been the recipient of numerous awards for excellence due to the services provided at Boca Home Care. She is pleased to announce that the company has received much praise and acclaim for its services.

About: Lisa Kaufman and Boca Home Care are providers of quality home care for Boca Raton.
