PERSONALIZED PRIVATE CAREGIVING SOLUTIONS®

Helping Grandma

Finding and introducing a professional caregiver into your family system can be an emotionally, logistically and financially jarring experience. It's not something you typically plan for. More often than not, it comes on the heels of receiving upsetting news that leaves you feeling very overwhelmed.

Our mission here at CaregiversDirect® is to make the whole process as comforting and reassuring as possible for everyone involved, all along the way.

Our comprehensive online tools and concierge-level support team are all oriented to provide the most supportive and personalized experience possible, keeping your particular circumstances and needs our top priority.

We believe that dignity, empathy and trust should anchor all aspects of the caregiving process. This is true for everyone involved: the person seeking care, the caregiver, the loved ones hiring and managing the caregiver, and others who have a vested interest in the well-being of the person being cared for.

You're 100% in charge. We're 100% here to support you.

Once you've joined CaregiversDirect and created a Care Plan for yourself or loved one, you will be presented with caregiver profiles (see example) of those that best match your described needs. You can review these profiles to learn more about their past work experience, certifications, and backgrounds. And you can request that they join your Care Plan.

Ultimately, your Care Plan will consist of 3-5 caregivers that have been pre-selected and approved based on location, skill set, personality traits, and experience. You will designate one to be your primary care provider, while the others are available as part of your care team — to work with or fill in for your primary caregiver.

Once you've identified your preferred caregivers and they've accepted to join your Care Plan, both parties will sign an electronic agreement outlining the terms of the job and a schedule will be generated on a weekly basis.

Caregiver payments are processed on a daily basis (on days when care is provided) and charged to the credit card on file; payments are made to caregivers on a bi-weekly basis.

CaregiversDirect caregivers set their own rates, shown on their individual profile page. Your caregiver is paid his/her hourly rate and we charge you a service fee of 20%. For example, if you pay your caregiver $15/hr, your total estimated cost with taxes and our fee ($3/hr) is $19.76/hr.

The IRS classifies private caregivers as household employees, so CaregiversDirect has partnered with HomeWork Solutions® to provide integrated payroll processing and tax management, including automatic tax deductions and signature-ready tax paperwork.

Household employers are required to provide employees with contact information for the employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier. In many cases, workers' compensation is either already included or can be easily and inexpensively added to your homeowners' insurance policy. If you don't have a policy or aren't sure, call and we'll be happy to help!
