What Is the Difference Between Private Duty Home Care and a Home Care Registry?

Private Duty Home Care hires their own employees who are covered by the company's work comp insurance and are paid by the company. Private duty agencies provide nursing assessments and oversight, and the agency manages the caregivers

Home Care registries refer qualified care providers that work as independent contractors. The care provider works for the client and the rate and schedule is decided between the care provider and the client. The cost of a registry service is normally 10-30% less than hiring an agency.
