How Caregiver Connection Structures Payment 

Our business is referring the highest-caliber caregivers in the Portland metro area to you, based on your needs and preferences. We accomplish this for our clients by carefully screening caregivers with our 6-Point Screening Process and maintaining a regular schedule of background checks; you and your caregiver determine all rates and responsibilities without limitations by our registry. We take our responsibilities to our clients seriously, and our referral fees reflect the value we provide. 

Referral Option #1: Pay-As-You-Go
This is our most popular option, recommended for short-term situations such as recovery from a medical event, or hospice. Fees are $3.50 per hour, with a cap of up to $35 per day for 24-hour care services. Fees are (due? billed? when?).

Referral Option #2: One-Time Buyout
This One-Time Buyout is recommended for permanent caregiver situations. The fee is equal to one month of the caregivers’ salary, or a minimum of $1500, whichever is greater. Fees are (billed? and) due within the first 60 days of caregiver employment.
