Using A Home Care Agency Versus Hiring an Independent Contractor


  Consideration:       






Apex Home Health Services






 Independent Contractor



Caregiver backup for emergencies



At Apex, 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, providing you peace of mind that if the caregiver hurt themselves in your home they would not sue your homeowners insurance policy.



Independent Contractors can sue your homeowners insurance policy if hurt on the job.


Quality control & supervision of home care staff



All cases are carefully monitored and supervised by our Certified Senior Care Managers and our management team.
• Random visits for quality insurance.
• 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, as they are our employees.



You are responsible for reporting and remitting state, federal, and FICA taxes to the proper tax authorities.


Criminal background and reference checks



Our employees are carefully screened at the time of hire with several layers of thorough background checks. Approximately 90% of applicants do not meet our high standards.



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.
When the skill level or amount of care required increases or decreases, we can accommodate the changes in needs.



Skills are fixed to the particular individual, and you pay for the skills they can perform rather than the skills you need.


Experience



Our caregivers have been delivering quality home care to satisfied clients for an average of over seven years.



Varies.


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.



Independent contractor(s) 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.
