What is the difference between a Placement Agency, a Care Giver Agency and a Home Care Agency?

A Placement Agency carefully selects and screens for the best caregivers to serve as nannies, babysitters or senior companions. We personally match them to your needs and the needs of your loved ones. The client/family and caregiver then agree to the terms of employment and contract directly with each other. A Placement Agency provides general care.
A Care Giver Agency may work the same as a Placement Agency or employ the caregiver and collect a fee for their services like an employment agency during the period of employment from either the family or the caregiver.
A Home Care Agency is usually licensed or certified by the Department of Health to provide skilled care.
