Asking questions about senior care is more important in Arizona than in many other states because Arizona does not regulate home care.
Some companies compete by advertising the lowest caregiver rate. These rates are possible because of the classification of caregivers as independent contractors instead of employees. Classifying caregivers as independent contractors instead of employees restricts the company in providing supervision, training, and enforcing policies. Additionally, senior clients and their families are at increased financial and legal risk.
Asking the right questions will help you select the right home care agency.
