Frequently Asked Questions

Wouldn’t it be cheaper to hire someone privately instead of through an agency like yours?

It might be cheaper, but you would not get the range of services provided by Atlantic Caregiving. Our coordinators fully interview and screen our caregivers, check references and conduct a police check. Coverage of scheduled hours could be an issue if the private duty staff is ill or needs time off. We conduct regular quality checks and if a caregiver is not a good fit for a client, we will replace them.
