Services that go above and beyond

Our in home care providers concentrate on a few essential support tasks that most elderly persons require. Providers may provide a combination of the following services:

  • Grocery shopping, meal preparation, errands, light housework, and medicine reminders are all examples of homemaking services.
  • Bathing, grooming, and hygiene, toileting and incontinence, and monitoring any physical problems are all examples of personal care.
  • Companionship care includes things like errands, daily socializing, and mental and emotional health check-ups.

Some providers provide additional specialized services, such as a 24-hour emergency response, live-in care, or memory care for Alzheimer's or dementia patients.

You're likely to see a variety of business models

The majority of in home care providers fall into one of three categories: employment-based agencies, registries, or independent providers. The difference in how a care provider is set up mainly revolves around who is regarded the care provider's employer, and thus who is responsible for taxes, insurance, liabilities, and so on. Different service costs may be associated with these various company models.

Employment-related organizations

A corporation, subsidiary, or franchise can operate as an employment-based agency. The most significant advantage of choosing a caregiver from a company that employs its caregivers is that the company handles all of the behind-the-scenes details. It conducts interviews with potential caregivers, does thorough background checks, verifies employee information, validates references, and handles all employee fringe costs (insurance, taxes, and so on). Working with an employment-based agency may provide the following advantages:

  • Face-to-face interviews are conducted, as well as thorough background, information, and reference checks.
  • For their caregivers, the organization provides workers' compensation, general liability, and bonding insurance.
  • Before being placed in a client's home, caregivers undertake training.
  • All certifications and other standards are met by the organization and its providers.
  • In the case that a client's regular caregiver is unavailable, the organization can provide a substitute.


A registry creates and maintains a database of caregivers but does not actually hire them. Registries serve as "matchmakers" for caregivers and families looking for in-home care. Caregivers are frequently self-employed, however employment arrangements vary. Clients that use a register may discover a caregiver who can work with their family, but the registry is then deemed the caregiver's employer, and the client is responsible for tax withholdings, insurance coverage, and other obligations. Some registries may offer worker's compensation coverage, although the scope and application of that coverage will differ. The vast majority of registries conduct background checks on the caregivers in their databases. Clients who hire caregivers through a register should be aware of the following:

  • Who is the caregiver's employer, and who is liable for taxes, withholdings, insurance, and other issues?
  • What kind of background checks were performed on the caregiver and what the results were.
  • What kind of insurance coverage, if any, does the in-home caregiver have?
  • What kind of training and qualifications has the caregiver gotten?
  • The method by which the caregiver is compensated.
  • If there is any kind of caregiver accountability or oversight.

Care providers that are self-employed

An independent caregiver could be someone the client knows, someone from the community, or someone who advertises themselves as a caregiver but is not affiliated with a bigger organization. Clients who hire an independent caregiver are deemed the caregiver's employer under the law. That means they must obtain the necessary insurance coverage in the event that the caregiver is injured while providing care in the house, as well as general liability insurance in the event that the caregiver causes property damage. Most homeowner's insurance policies do not cover the costs of accidents or damages caused while a caregiver is on the premises. The customer will need to look into the caregiver's past and confirm details like experience, references, and licensure. Clients are totally responsible for all responsibilities, and employment-based organizations usually cover the costs.
