Home Carers Direct is an online platform connecting people seeking home care directly with vetted, suitably qualified, and insured, local home carers.
Carers using Home Carers Direct are independent workers running their own businesses, so they set their own rates and are engaged directly by those seeking care. All carers have passed national police record and referee checks, have had their qualifications verified, and are covered by insurance.
By using Home Carers Direct, people seeking care can search for and choose their carer according to their needs and preferences (e.g. spoken languages). And by engaging their carer directly, they may pay less per hour than with a traditional provider.
Home Carers Direct is a family owned business and the platform has been available for bookings since April 2018.
