The client has two choices. They can pay the caregiver directly and the caregiver then pays a referral fee to our registry for assisting them in “finding clients”.
The client can fund an escrow account, set up by the registry. An invoice is generated on behalf of each caregiver based on hours submitted and signed off on by the client. Payment is then made to the caregiver on behalf of the client. The caregiver is issued a 1099 tax form at the end of year and the client is issued a statement showing what they paid for home care services during the year. This provides safety and peace of mind for the client and caregiver that all documentation needed for tax related filings is satisfied.
