Are independent home care providers less expensive than agencies?

The option to hire an independent home care worker is one that should be explored for individuals who are facing difficult financial options. Due to the fact that they have little if any overhead, independent home care providers can be far more inexpensive than agencies, who have high overhead to compensate for.

If you’re considering hiring an independent home care provider, ensure that he's licensed with the state and insured, and always perform thorough research on his references. You should never consider hiring an independent home care provider who is unable to provide a list of references and who does not consent to a full background check.

Find an independent home care provider near you by searching local listings.
