Our Referral Services
At Golden Independence we understand that it can be difficult for seniors on a fixed income to afford a home care services. That is why we developed a referral service designed to allow seniors to hire a professional caregiver privately, without the potential risk of hiring someone off the street.
We have two different programs available.
- The 1099-Referral
This is when a client has a caregiver come out, and the caregiver is an independent contractor. The same rigorous screening and training process has been done for all of our caregivers including the 1099 referral. This ensures the quality of care is not compromised. Caregivers work as an independent contractor eliminating overhead expense and passing on a savings to the client.
- Hourly is anywhere from $17-$20 per hour.
- Live-in is anywhere from $200-$250 per shift.
Caregivers under this program are paid through the company as an independent contractor.
- Direct Hire Referral
We also have a direct hire referral program. This is where the caregiver works for the client directly. An intake coordinator will come out and help set pricing and do an assessment to do a plan of care. Wages are negotiated between client and caregiver, and client becomes the direct employer. Intake coordinator can help set up all appropriate employee forms for client to ensure they are in compliance with all applicable laws.
Under both of these referral options, we recommend looking into your home owners insurance to ensure you are covered in the event an on the job accident occurs.
