Home Care Services Santa Clarita is a company that provides specially trained and licensed in-home caregivers for seniors. We help families keep seniors, and others needing assistance, safe, healthy and independent in their homes.
Rick Ferrante, president of Home Care Services Santa Clarita and Woodland Hills shares his insight on various matters concerning senior care and working with caregivers.
Rick discusses the liability of not having workers compensation, for instance, as mentioned in a previous video, there are times when a person hiring a caregiver may be seen as an employer in the eyes of the state. If this is the case, then that caregiver may no longer be seen as an independent contractor but rather an employee of that employer. This means that if the caregiver becomes injured on the job or if payroll taxes are not collected, then the person hiring them could be liable.

When working with an agency, this liability can be removed as the agency will take on things such as workers compensation should an injury occur as well as payroll taxes. Thus, there is added peace of mind in not having to deal with the latter by working with a home care provider agency.
It is one of many benefits in working with an agency. Having a home caregiver provided by an agency also makes it so replacements can be quickly pulled in if the original caregiver cannot make it to work. Lastly, it may take time to background check someone as well as find out if they are licensed.
An agency does all this ahead of time so the person can start work immediately.
