Connecting Caregivers and Clients
Irish Referral In-Home Senior Help services the greater Bay Area, screening and connecting compassionate & dedicated caregivers with clients in need of personal and domestic care in their home. We are an Irish-Owned family business with a decade of experience in the Home Care industry.
The Referral Agency Option
Different than a Home Care Agency, the Irish Referral Agency is a recruitment and placement agency for home caregivers. Irish Referral Agency will recruit, interview, screen and ensure caregivers are Registered Home Care Aides (which includes finger printing and criminal background checks). Once a suitable caregiver is identified, the caregiver becomes an employee of the client. The client is responsible for complying with state and federal laws, insurance, payroll taxes and employee performance. You can agree on the caregiver's hourly rate and the hours/shifts that work for you both. Irish Referral Agency charges the client a referral/finder's fee. The negotiated cost of services is often significantly less than what you pay through an Agency.
The In-Home Care Option
What's the difference between an In-Home Care Agency and a Referral Service? When you hire a full scale In-Home Care Agency such as our sister company, Supple Senior Care, the Agency is a fully licensed Home Care Organization (HCO), and is the employer of record. The agency offers a wide spectrum of non-medical personal care, respite care services, and domestic support services provided by Certified Home Care Aides, Certified Nurses Aides, Personal Care Aides, Attendants, Homemakers, and Companions. All caregivers are employees of, and supervised by the Agency, and are available on a continuous hourly or live-in basis. The agency withholds taxes, provides workers' compensation insurance, does criminal background checks, and is bonded and insured.
