In this video, she talks of workers compensation and how that comes into play if hiring an individual caregiver; Caleigh articulates the differences between working with an agency to hiring an individual caregiver.
One advantage to working with an agency as opposed to hiring an individual caregiver is that if someone is hiring an individual caregiver to help with home health care services they could be seen as an employer in the eyes of the state. Thus, as mentioned in a previous blog, you could be responsible for withholding payroll taxes but also have to deal with workers compensation.

For instance, if the caregiver hurts themselves in your home, you could potentially be liable. This is as opposed to working with an agency, where if the same happens, it is the responsibility of the agency and their insurance company to handle. Thus, the individual who hired the caregiver should not have to be deal with that.
