What is self-directed care?
Self-directed home care is an emerging trend in the world of health care in which certain patients or their proxy decision maker can choose their own care worker and determine how, what and when they receive that care.
What is your minimum shift?
At Gotcare, we believe in the importance of making home care a viable career for care workers. As a result, we require a minimum of 2 hours per shift.
What is the difference between a caregiver and a care worker?
A caregiver is a family member or a friend that provides care to a loved one at no charge. A care worker is someone who provides care for a fee. A care worker might have specialized training and could include a Personal Support Worker (PSW), Health Care Aide (HCA), Registered Nurse (RN) or may even be a next door neighbour with no formal training in the area of caregiving, but has a caring spirit and has capacity to offer his/her community.
Are care workers in your network vetted or supervised?
Care workers on Gotcare’s platform have self reported their credentials. Gotcare provides no vetting, training or supervision. It is up to the user of the Gotcare service to request any and all information from the care worker before making an informed decision to work with them.
