When you decide it's time for home care assistance, consider the differences in how you hire a professional care provider. There are several options in how you hire a home care service provider. The differences in these options can affect personal security, legal responsibility, financial liability and the reliability and quality of the care you receive. These differences should be made clear to you before you select a care provider. Please review the comparison chart below so you can be an informed consumer.
Hiring a care provider directly or through a referral agency can seem like it's saving you money, but it can actually cost you more in the long run. Using an "employer-model" agency like Affinia Home Care can save you a lot of time and work by putting professionals in charge of recruiting, screening, training and supervising a care provider to ensure you are getting quality care for as long as you need it.
