Frequently Asked Questions About Respite Care Services
What is a caregiver registry?
A caregiver registry is also known as a client directed model. In Texas it is important to make sure your agency, even if it is a registry, is state licensed. If so, like in the case of Ray of Sunshine, a registry gives the client the best of both worlds:
State oversight and agency compliance with all home and community services regulations while allowing the client a direct voice in their care and access to tasks such as being able to inverview and select your own caregivers, negotiate and change schedules directly with your caregiver and the knowledge that your caregiver can not be reassigned for agency convenience.
