Typically, no. At first, it may seem as though hiring an independent caregiver is more affordable, but there are multiple hidden costs that seniors and families are responsible for and will incur when hiring an independent caregiver. With an independent caregiver, you are the employer and therefore legally responsible and financially responsible for the caregiver's taxes, worker's compensation coverage, and more. Also, when using an independent caregiver, there is no backup plan and no accountability. When you work with home care companies, like Caregivers by WholeCare, they handle these expenses and responsibilities. Also, company caregivers are bonded and insured, protecting you from liabilities. We take care of our caregivers as we care for our clients. We feel working for a company is best for all concerned, a win, win, win.
