Agency vs. Registry

Stay Safely at Home

At FCP Live-In, our goal is to ensure the safety of our clients. To that end, we assign a care team to each of our clients. The team consists of the following members:

  • A care coordinator who works with our client’s family and other providers to implement care.
  • A caregiver who is matched to the needs and personality preferences of the client.
  • A quality assurance manager who checks in and monitors the care experience.
  • A field supervisor who visits the home to review and update the client’s care plans.
  • An operations team that is available 24/7 for both families and care staff.

All of FCP Live-In team members work closely in collaboration together to make sure our clients receive well-coordinated care within the home.

Before you make a decision about in-home care, do your research. Beware of registries and hiring private duty care staff.

FCP Live-In is a full-service agency that screens and hires its own caregivers. A registry finds jobs for caregivers who work as independent contractors. A registry also charges a separate fee for service. Registry prices are not all-inclusive and tend to increase with higher-need clients.

By using a registry, families become employers of the care staff they hire, which means they are responsible for all employment taxes, workers compensation insurance, and liability insurance. What’s more, families are responsible for providing the supplies private duty caregivers need to do their job.

Unlike a home care agency, a registry usually does not have quality assurance, a support team or field supervision in place to ensure caregivers are providing appropriate services to their clients.

With FCP Live-In, families can avoid these worries because we handle all employment issues related to our caregivers. We are committed to providing peace of mind and high-quality services to families and their loved ones who want to live safely and independently in the comfort of their homes.
