06 Aug Rapid Growth of Caregiver Services, Inc. Illustrates Value of Registries as Cost-Effective Way for Consumers to Obtain Private Duty Home Care
Caregiver Services, Inc. (CSI) has leveraged the value of home care registries as a low-cost, self-directed vehicle for obtaining private care to become one of the largest nursing care registries in the U.S., with a network of more than 5,000 caregivers in Florida.
Founded in 2000, CSI has achieved in excess of 100 percent growth over the span of the past five years – a particularly challenging time for many U.S. businesses – by establishing its registry offering as a way for consumers to achieve 10-30 percent cost savings over alternative means for obtaining professional in-home nursing care.
A nursing care “registry” is a home care company that refers independent-contractor caregivers to individuals on a private basis, for care that is needed anywhere from a few hours at a time to 24 hours a day. These caregivers are essentially in business for themselves and are not paid by the registry, but they are subjected to a very rigorous selection process to ensure that the registry refers only the very best caregivers.
