How long are they spending inside the house? Visits last from 15-60 minutes, depending on what care is required. It is most likely though that they have arrived early and are waiting.
If I was you I would ask the carer .I am a home carer and quite often get asked by a neighbour how a person is getting on ,they won't mind if there's nothing to hide
