A Referral Agency is often referred to as a “Domestic Referral Agency”
A Referral Agency registers Professional Caregivers then refers them to families and into the homes of the aging, ill, disabled and injured. It’s a business model designed to promote total control for the client and independent professional caregivers alike.
A Referral Agency does not employ the caregivers
Because the caregivers work independently, they are not employees of the agency. This also means that the agency cannot offer bonding insurance, professional liability insurance or workers compensation insurance. Any client can request a caregiver to provide their own bonding and liability insurance. Worker’s compensation insurance can be easily engaged by the client through either a Home Owner’s Insurance policy or Renter’s insurance Policy, by getting a Rider in addition to the current coverage. The cost is usually between $80-$200 per year.

Their Clients do
When a client requests to meet a referred professional caregiver, they do with the understanding that the caregiver is not the referral agency’s employee. When clients set up a regular schedule with this person, they will have already initiated services through a third party payment company responsible for billing and payments for services. Negotiations for caregiver payments are settled between the client and the caregiver.
The Simple Answer is, It’s Up to You.
Love Right does not control the pricing for home care. Every client and Independent care professional will negotiate their fees together. In addition to that negotiation, Love Right will add an office fee (Administrative Fee) which is a range between $6 – $10 per hour on top of the caregivers fee. The total cost to the consumer is comparable or less than the employee based Home Care Agencies.
Referral Agencies are More Affordable
Caregivers that register with referral agencies decide what they charge to each client. They are not limited to the amount of time they can work or restricted from performing certain tasks. The total cost of care is distributed heavily towards the caregiver (which they deserve, lets be honest), While the agency fee is low & reasonable.
