Why an Agency instead of Private Caregiver?

You may not be aware of all the details that you are held responsible for when hiring a private caregiver. Here are the main things to consider when looking at your options.
 
Cost-   We realize that the cost of an agency is usually more expensive than hiring a private caregiver, but you may find the added benefits of hiring an agency outweigh the cost difference.
 
Taxes-   Home care providers, whether private or employed through an agency, are someone’s employee. Hiring a caregiver privately means that you take on the tax and unemployment liabilities for that individual. All Visiting Angels caregivers are W2 employees and are managed by our team.
 
Time Off-   All caregivers, private duty and agency employed, will need time off due to illness, personal reasons, etc. Private duty caregivers will not have a backup for you, but an agency like Visiting Angels has a pool of equally qualified caregivers who can fill-in for your regular caregiver during their absence.
 
Liability-   Private Duty caregivers may not always carry personal liability insurance. All Visiting Angels employees are bonded and insured to secure your peace of mind.
