The carer worked for Fforestfach-based Home Comforts Care.
A spokesman for its parent company, Enara, said the firm was "working with the relevant authorities" over the issue.
He said: "We are aware of an on-going police inquiry into allegations about an Enara employee in South Wales.
"We are working closely with the relevant authorities and it is inappropriate to comment further at this stage."
A 22-year-old man — believed to be the carer's partner — has also been arrested in connection with the same allegations.
He, too, is on police bail.
A spokesman for South Wales Police said investigations were continuing.
He said: "I can confirm that police in Swansea have arrested a 30-year-old woman and a 22-year-old on suspicion of burglary.
"Both have been released on police bail pending further enquiries and the investigation is on-going."
