At A Place For Mom, we only work with licensed agencies. Often, families feel by hiring caregivers through "word of mouth" is less expensive, but they are taking a risk. Agencies may be a little more expensive, but you are working with caregivers that have received a background check, proper training, and are accountable for their time. If the caregiver cannot work on a certain day, the agency can easily send a substitute. Also, by working with an agency, you are covered if there is an injury to the caregiver. Take the time to research some Home Care Agencies who service your area through a Place For Mom.
