Hello and welcome to TP. I'm so sooty to read about your situation. I am glad you've TP though. It's a life saver for many people.

If you're concerned about the carers can you talk to their manager or the social worker? Doesyour dad have a care plan? That should set out his needs and what is expected of them while they are with your dad. If they're not fulfilling this then you need to talk to someone about it.
