Family Directed vs Traditional Home Care

How do costs compare for you?

What’s great about Family Directed is you set the rate directly with the caregiver, but don’t worry each caregiver indicates their desired wage! You’ll only pay this rate + our support fee*.

*If House Hold Employer is designation is selected, you’ll also be responsible for payroll taxes which range 10-14% depending on the state, but don’t worry our integrated payroll partner will take care of all that so you know just how much it will cost.

How do you know a caregiver has arrived?

When your caregiver uses the Family Directed mobile app, you are able to know automatically when they clock in for a shift and then clocked out.

Call and ask

What if the caregiver misses a shift?

One of the biggest concerns is what happens if someone doesn’t show up? Well – we make it easy. When you first meet your caregivers we suggest meeting multiple caregivers. That means if an unexpected absence occurs you can quickly contact those other caregivers to cover the shift.
