Benefits of Using A Life at Home vs. Hiring an Independent Caregiver

A Life at Home
Independent Caregiver
Caregiver backup for emergencies We are ready and able to fill the need with one phone call. None. Home care backup is extra stress to your family.
Bonding, liability & workers comp. insurance 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 owner’s insurance policy. Usually none. It’s your responsibility to investigate any insurance held by these individuals. Private individuals can sue your home owner’s insurance policy if hurt on the job.
Quality control & supervision of home care staff • All cases are carefully monitored and supervised by our RN or our management team.
• Random visits made regularly.
• Family members kept
informed on a regular basis.
These individuals are completely independent and lack formal supervision.
Continuing caregiver training We provide continual mandatory
in-service caregiver training.
These individuals may or may not continue to build upon their knowledge and skills.
Payroll, taxes, and IRS We assume responsibility. You are responsible for reporting and remitting state, federal, and FICA taxes to the proper tax authorities, and overtime compliance.
Criminal background and
reference checks
Our employees are carefully screened at the time of hire and ongoing with several layers of thorough background checks. It is your responsibility to check the background of the individual.
Flexibility of home care services 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.
Skills are often fixed to the particular individual, and you pay for the skills they can perform rather than the skills you need.
Experience Our caregivers have often been delivering quality home care to satisfied clients for years. Variable.
General availability 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. 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.
