Why Distinguished Care Options?

We conduct an extensive background check on all our caregivers. We are very careful about who we hire and with whom we match our caregivers. Also, if a caregiver cannot make a shift due to their own illness, we can replace that person with another caregiver and not leave the client and/or family without coverage. And, we handle payroll and taxes for all our caregivers, which is something for which you would be responsible when privately hiring a caregiver.
