4 Reasons to Hire a Home Care Provider Through an Agency



Homecare in Queen Creek AZIf your parent has reached a stage in life where they can no longer live independently at home without some help, you’re probably considering hiring someone to provide home care. When it comes to hiring a home care provider, you have a couple of options. You could hire someone privately, such as through a referral from a friend or family member or by placing an ad in the newspaper. Or, you could contact a local home care provider agency. One of your concerns is probably cost. It’s true that you’ll probably pay less if you hire someone privately, but there are many reasons that the extra costs incurred through an agency are well worth it. Here are just four reasons you should consider hiring a home care provider through an agency.

#1 The Agency is Responsible for Hiring

Hiring a home care provider isn’t as easy as someone responding to your newspaper ad and then coming to your parent’s home to help them. You’ll probably want to interview several people to make sure you pick just the right one. Even when you’ve made your choice, you’ll want to do a background check to make sure the person is trustworthy. The process could go on for a while, leaving your parent without care or you with the duties of caring for your parent.

Home care agencies take care of all the work of hiring qualified personnel. They interview, conduct background checks, and match clients with home care providers that can meet their needs. When you call an agency, the process of setting your parent up with home care could take much less time than if you go it on your own.

#2 The Agency Handles Employer Taxes

When you hire a home care provider privately, you are responsible for paying employer-related taxes, including Social Security, unemployment, and payroll taxes. The process can be complicated and time consuming. Home care agencies take care of all the paperwork and tax payments.

#3 A Replacement is Always Available

When you hire someone privately, you may be left with finding someone to cover for them when they go on vacation, get sick, or if they unexpectedly quit. Home care agencies handle all the scheduling so that your parent always has the care they need.

#4 An Agency Can Help with Changing Needs

Your parent’s needs could change over time. When this happens, a privately hired person may not have the skills or time necessary to meet new demands. Home care agencies can help you to determine when your parent needs additional help and draw from their pool of employees who probably have different areas of expertise and experience with a variety of senior issues and health concerns.

Mike Endredy, Owner
Mike has been involved with home care for the last 11 years as the owner of SYNERGY HomeCare of the East Valley (Phoenix AZ). 
Mike was brought to the home care industry like many folks through a need to care for my father near the end of his life. 
"Although my mother was the primary caregiver there was not a service to use that can offer relief for my mother and from 2,000 miles away I was not able to provide the care personally he needed.  It was however, a few years after my father's passing that I personally decided to change careers, leaving a career in engineering.  I have never looked back.  Making a difference in people's lives changes you more profoundly than anything and I love that experience.  In the eleven years of making a difference my exceptional team of caregivers and staff have made a difference through providing over 2 million hours worth of care.  This journey is just beginning.  Making a difference in somebody's life or a family members life is why I do what I do.  The hurdles, the heartbreak and the pain that comes makes me stronger and more determined to help another. " - Mike Endredy
