It would be so easy if price were the only difference



Before you consider a lower-priced provider of non-medical home care services for your aging parent or loved one, many factors should be considered. If you are hiring a “private caregiver” on your own, there are significant risks, responsibilities and requirements that you will need to manage—that will cost time and money.  

As the official “Employer” of an independent caregiver, you should consider the following issues:

  • IRS requires withholdings and taxes must be reported and paid including Social Security, Medicare, State and Federal unemployment taxes

  • For the tax year, a Schedule H and a W-2 must be completed and remain on record for your caregiver

  • Verification in the form of an I-9 must be completed to acknowledge your caregiver is legally eligible to work in the U.S

  • What about a criminal background check in all 50 states? It's a significant cost that should not be skipped

  • Drug screen prior to hiring? Another cost, but is a must to ensure your loved one's safety

  • Employment verification check, to ensure no past problems with your caregiver’s work ethic

  • TB, Hepatitis B and a physical clearance from their physician is another precaution to keep your loved one safe

  • Liability insurance in place to cover possible theft in the home

At SYNERGY HomeCare of North Houston, we take care of all the responsibilities and requirements so that you can be worry-free to focus on supporting your loved one. We have qualified and compassionate caregivers ready and available to provide all levels of care — companion, personal, homemaker, transportation or whatever you may need.
