Types of Caregivers

When you're ready to take the plunge and find your senior loved one an in-home caregiver, it can be hard to know where to start. And since providing your senior with the best care possible is the first priority, you'll want to find the right qualified caregiver. Additionally, you will need to choose between an independent caregiver or a professional caregiver. Here is a brief explanation about the difference between these types of in-home caregivers.

Independent Caregivers

These types of caregivers typically do not work for an agency or any specific home care company. Instead, independent caregivers work for themselves and may advertise their services along with experience. They may be cheaper to hire than a professional caregiver however they come with a certain level of risk such as not being licensed or insured which could leave a financial burden to the hiring family if something goes wrong. In addition, independent caregivers may not possess the training or meet the qualifications that would be required by a home care agency.

Professional/Agency Caregivers

Care giving agencies work directly for seniors by providing them with caregivers that have met specific qualifications and have participated in extensive training. Caregivers that work for these agencies are carefully selected to fit a senior's specific needs, and, in the event of an emergency, agencies have other caregivers that can fill in.

These types of caregivers are paid by the agency and have strict sets of standards. Hiring a caregiver through an agency is also beneficial because agencies can provide you with additional emergency help and resources although the hourly rate may be more expensive.
