Home care allows seniors to enjoy their independence and freedom that living at home brings.

A private caregiver is an individual who is hired by the family to look after their loved ones.

The skills of the individual can vary greatly, with some private caregivers having minimal training while others have college degrees and nurse training.   There are many factors to consider when hiring a private caregiver to come into your home.  In addition to being covered with the required insurances, families are also responsible for inspecting resumes, verifying credentials, contacting references, and performing background checks.   A home care agency will take the headache out of finding a qualified and reputable caregiver for your family.

A home care agency is an organization that employs caregivers and a variety of support staff.

The agency’s staff works together to provide home care for many different clients.  The kinds of staff that work for a home care agency may include caregivers, certified nurses (CNA), home health aides (HHA), licensed vocational nurses (LVN), and registered nurses (RN).
