Profesional Home Instead CAREGiver v Black Market Caregiver
Jul 13, 2015

Why should we employ a Professional CAREGiver from Home Instead Senior Care rather than on the black market ?

When recruiting on the black market, it is your responsibility to check their background and to ensure that their PAYE and PRSI are taken care of. You become their employer and have to make sure that you have Employers and Public Liability Insurance to cover the carer in your home and also when the carer is providing local transport. 

There is no guarantee that they are trained to meet your needs and there are no Home Care Managers in place to monitor the quality of the service. If your carer is sick or on holidays there is no back up available to provide a replacement.
