It is the on-call schedule makes this feasible, since it is easily affordable. Therefore, it may not be required in the posting model to a 24-hour presence of the caregivers. It can only be of the families hoped that the carer leaves the house so often and for a long time. Furthermore, many agencies had to raise their prices to the minimum wage law.
