Clients hire caregivers directly for a referral fee. In our model, called consumer-directed care, clients and caregivers determine all the details of their arrangements together, including duties and compensation. Our independent caregivers provide all levels of personal care, from companionship to hospice. Many of our independent caregivers have certified nursing assistant (CNA) or other healthcare-related backgrounds, such as nursing, massage or acupuncture studies. They specialize in medical care giving, including hospice care. Caregivers must have basic care giving skills and experience, as well as interpersonal skills, in order to be placed on our registry. Additionally, caregivers are required to have their own cell phone, cars and e-mail, for quick response.
