Caregivers - Why Join a Registry?

Finding the right caregiver can be a daunting task for a consumer- particularly in the aftermath of hospitalization or sudden illness. And finding the right client for a caregiver is equally challenging. Creating and placing advertisements , performing rounds of interviews, conducting multiple reference checks and verifying credentials are just some of the steps that a registry will take to ensure you and your client are the perfect match.

In Addition, a Registry Will:

  • Conduct face to face interviews with all registry caregivers, after initial online application is received
  • Keep all caregiver and client information confidential
  • Afford the caregiver and the client the ability to track caregivers services and  via a telephony system administered by Clear Care
  • Afford the client the utilization of an outside bookkeeping service to handle caregiver’s invoicing and compensation checks, as well as generating year end 1099’s
  • Generates Client Service Agreements for each client and their individual caregivers.

    Most Caregivers have found that they are more generously compensated when they belong to a registry as opposed to the Agency Driven Model of Homecare. This generally translates to a higher quality of care services provided to their clients

In a Registry, there is no risk of a caregiver that a client likes being reassigned to another client.

Registries support caregiver entrepreneurship, which also promotes a higher level of professionalism in the service provided.
