___ Are they trusted by clients and the community?
For more than 15 years, Home Instead Senior Care has been a reliable source of home care for individuals and families around the world. We are referred by thousands of health care, medical, and social services organizations.
___ Are they locally owned and operated?
The Lorain County office has home care staff and CAREGivers who are engaged in your community and know the resources that are available in Lorain County. The owner volunteers as a board member for the Lorain County Office on Aging.
___Who pays the CAREGiver?
Because our CAREGivers are employees, not independent contractors, we assume all the responsibilities of handling taxes, benefits, scheduling, insurance, bonding, and workers' compensation. Each CAREGiver is paid bi-monthly through payroll by our office. If an organization requires you to pay the caregiver directly, it is recommended that you consult your CPA and attorney for tax and liability concerns. An agency should be very transparent about their coverage. Ask to see their documentation.
___Is the business ran out of a home? Is your personal information safe? Home Instead Senior Care has a secure professional office. Clients and CAREGivers are welcome to stop by anytime during office hours. The office is where we hold quarterly CAREGiver meetings and conduct mandatory ongoing training. Stop by and take a tour!
