As our client, you have a choice about how you want your carers to be managed.
The introductory model. We can introduce carers and you engage them yourself; telling them what you want them to do, how you want to live and agreeing the tasks she should carry out. You must be confident that the manner in which your carer carries out her tasks will not be subject to supervision, management or control by anyone. You must be able to sign a contract with the carer, to demonstrate that the carer is genuinely self-employed. Christies Care introduces suitable (trained, checked) carers to you. The carer is self-employed and responsible for all her tax and NI. With this model, a week of live-in home care costs between £650 and £950.
The domiciliary, fully managed model. The alternative is for Christies Care, as a CQC registered domiciliary care agency, to manage and control the carer. Christies Care (after consulting with you) tells the carer what tasks should be carried out and manages her performance. The carer is employed by Christies Care and Christies Care is responsible for all tax and NI. With this model, a week of live-in home care costs between £900 and £1,300.
