Home care agencies, assisted living facilities, independent living facilities and skilled nursing facilities all have a role to play. And, now with the recent regulatory changes, so does privately-employed in-home care – especially for those patients suffering from cognitive conditions who need many hours of consistent care.
The Private Employment Solution
Private employers are still exempt under federal law and most state law. These exemptions make private (direct) employment a much more affordable alternative to the traditional home care agency model – especially for cases that are chronic, high hour and require care continuity.
Even after adding in payroll taxes, insurance and all other employer-related expenses, the savings can be staggering. For more information visit: https://www.care.com/homepay
