The As Close As Family Difference
Are they all the same? Why should I employ an agency for me or my loved one? How is one agency different from another? Those are questions we hear almost everyday from client’s and their families. The truth is no two agencies are the same. Some agencies work with individual contractors which means they do not have direct supervision over them. All team members with As Close As Family are W2 employees which means they report directly to the ACAF office. There are many individual caregivers out there, so why should you choose an agency for you or your loved one? ACAF employs numerous caregivers that are available 24/7. What happens if you hire an independent caregiver and they call in sick? How are you screening your independent caregivers? Are your caregivers insured? Are they a licensed entity in the state? Are they taking care of the payroll taxes, or are you responsible for them? How dependable are they? What type of training do they have, have you verified that?
