Under a self-managed care service, caregivers are directly under the supervision or employment of the agency. The company takes direct payment from clients and then pays the caregiver.
In a self-managed model, self-employed caregivers work as independent contractors that are employed directly by the client. The agency simply works as a recruiter that helps expedite the process and manages all administration self-employed caregivers. They do this by building a database of caregivers, performing background checks and providing an easy platform for clients to choose from hundreds of available caregivers. The result is a win-win situation for all parties involved.
