Using A Home Care Agency Vs. Hiring an Independent Personal Attendant

Caregiver Backup for Emergencies

  • Home Care Agency:
    We are ready and able to fill the need with one phone call.
  • Independent Personal Attendant:
    None. Home care backup is extra stress to your family.

Bonding, Liability & Workers Compensation Insurance

  • Home Care Agency:
    Our staff are bonded and insured, giving you peace of mind that if the caregiver hurt themselves in your home they would not sue your home owners insurance policy.
  • Independent Personal Attendant:
    Usually none. It’s your responsibility to investigate any insurance held by these individuals. Private individuals can sue your home owners insurance policy if hurt on the job.

Quality Control & Supervision of Home Care Staff

  • Home Care Agency:
    All cases are carefully monitored and supervised by our Geriatric Case Managers and our management team. Random visits made regularly. Family members kept informed on a regular basis.
  • Independent Personal Attendant:
    These individuals are completely independent and lack formal supervision.

Continuing Caregiver Training

  • Home Care Agency:
    We provide continual mandatory in-service caregiver training.
  • Independent Personal Attendant:
    These individuals may or may not continue to build upon their knowledge and skills.

Payroll, Taxes, and IRS

  • Home Care Agency:
    We assume responsibility.
  • Independent Personal Attendant:
    You are responsible for reporting and remitting state, federal, and FICA taxes to the proper tax authorities.

Criminal Background and Reference Checks

  • Home Care Agency:
    Our employees are carefully screened at the time of hire with several layers of thorough background checks. Approximately 90% of applicants do not meet our high standards.
  • Independent Personal Attendant:
    It is your responsibility to check the background of the individual.

Flexibility of Home Care Services

  • Home Care Agency:
    Your home care service requirements will rarely stay the same. If the skill level or amount of care that you require increases or decreases, we can accommodate your needs.
  • Independent Personal Attendant:
    Skills are fixed to the particular individual, and you pay for the skills they can perform rather than the skills you need.

Experience

  • Home Care Agency:
    Our caregivers have been delivering quality home care to satisfied clients for an average of over seven years.
  • Independent Personal Attendant:
    Variable.

General Availability

  • Home Care Agency:
    We can provide home care services to you and your family 24 hours/day, 365 days/year. Your caregiver is available on weekends and holidays.
  • Independent Personal Attendant:
    One person means limited days and hours. You are responsible for staffing a replacement for sudden sickness, time off, emergencies, and vacations. Employment transitions mean that you start all over again.
