What should I consider when evaluating home care providers?
Here are some things you may want to consider:
- How long the agency has been in the business of home care
- Whether the agency is licensed, insured and bonded
- If the agency contract with independent workers or if everyone is an employee
- If the agency’s home health aides are certified
- How the company screens employees and whether it performs background checks
- If the agency provides continuing education for employees
