Depending on the experience of the caregiver. $18-$20 per an hour for experienced caregivers and the ones who also have a certified nurse assistant license. $12-$15 an hour for a non-experience caregiver.

It depends on where you live and what the average charge for those services are in your area. Maybe with companionship, hands on care and doctors appts, around, $25-$30, if not $35 and hour?

10-25 an hour. Depending on what type of caregiver you want. Some caregivers have CPR & AED certification. Some have background clearance. Some have experience. Some have their own transportation, and often the type of transportation is considered. Really, its about the level of care you want and who you want. This is decided in an interview.

I think that it is worth around $15 to $25 dollar an hour since she haft to take you from where you live to Northside Hospital it could be a quite a small trip, but the ultimate decision is yours,Just Pray about it and you will make the right decision.Good Luck

You should check into your insurance first to make sure they can't help you be4fore you try and pay for this yourself because the cost is extremely different. If your insurance will pay for your care chances are it will be somewhere between 11 to 13 an hour if you are paying independently you could be paying between 15-20. There are always people out there that need to make money though but you could be sacrificing the quality of care you receive.

this should be minimum $20 dollars an hour. the care giver will be there to help, not to sit. if it was basically to sit, the client wouldnt hire anyone. why would anybody want to hire someone to sit in your house?? no body will do that. they hire you either to watch, prevent falls,etc.......the care giver in that case will be there to help out, not to sit.

I suggest between $10 - $12 an hour. Sounds like you just need someone there for safety and not so much as hands on care. Good luck!

The cost for services such as these are dependent on several variables. How much supervision is required? How much driving is involved? What type of meal preparation is preferred? Each detail and need of service dictates the cost of care.

This depends. Most caregivers (myself included) would charge 15$ per hour for this, and possibly mileage reimbursement if using the caregiver's car. If you're interested in lowering costs, another suggestion would be asking family/friends to help out as well so you don't need the caregiver as much.

Depends on the state and whomever you find. The rates vary from agencies to private caregivers.The risk is finding someone trustworthy and experienced. Medication should be handled by the family and counted daily to make sure nothing goes missing. Sadly it happens a lot even in Senior Living Facilities.

It really depends on the time of year you ask-- for example, during the summer when high schoolers are on break and are available for the hours you are asking for, they tend to work for much cheaper. They run around $7.50-9 an hour. If you are looking for someone with experience or training in medical management, you are likely to pay more toward $11-17 an hour. Driving time, distance, and weekday vs weekend hours are factors toward pricing as well.

First of all, may you have a successful transplant and be cancer-free! - Gather all your food so there isn't meal preparation if money is a concern. Individual containers of yogurt, applesauce, raisins, etc. Pop-off lids of canned soups of various type, salmon, tuna, etc. are also options along with packs of crackers, loaf bread, and ready-to-eat vegs such as baby carrots. You can also wash apples ahead of time, and even make coffee ahead of time if you wish to take it farther. Then put in order on your kitchen counter-top your daily food items. Cover all the other details such as fresh water in a pitcher, etc. so the caregiver has almost zero kitchen work. This way, you can reduce what the caregiver has to do, and focus on paying for the transportation and sitting. If a caregiver just sits and provides transportation, she has less to do and you have more option to offer lower pay. Next, start reading caregiver ads in your area and interviewing caregivers. ANOTHER OPTION: call your local Council on Aging and ask them for a caregiver. They have seniors who want to work and the pay is usually slightly below the going rate. ANOTHER OPTION: Local churches that are active in the community may be able to help you with a caregiver if money is so tight that it's a challenge for you to hire someone. Cancer is an ugly beast and you will beat this! Churches have many members who would love to help you during this challenging time in your life. (Many people would love to help, it's just churches tend to have more hands-on opportunities to connect these individuals with your need.)

I think it depends on the caregiver's background and experience. If you have someone who has medical education, training and experience, who is trained to care for people who have medical conditions and what to look for and have training with medications, they should get paid more than someone who does not. I would say that for what you may be looking for as far as job requirements, $20-$25 an hour for someone with a medical background, or $15-$20 for someone who does not that background. If you would like to talk, I would be interested in talking to you and possibly working those 3 days a week that you will be looking for.

Because rate all differs state to state, where or should I ask what state is Northside Hospital? Depending on work-load as caregiver gets into all requested, could range $15-$20. But bare in mind hourly vs. entire week vs. live-in rates could very well benefit both client and caregiver in the long run. Nothing is ever cut & dry, more requests arise as we get into the whole of all requirements. Thank You for your time, Sincerely Rebecca G.

Hello! My ex husband went through this exact treatment 10 years ago. He was treated at Allegheny General Hospital and his stem cell transplant was done at West Penn Hospital. I am totally aware of what you are going through. Typical cost for a qualified caregiver ranges from the low of $10.00 per hour to $25.00 per hour. You will find more qualified and experienced caregivers in the $15.00 and above range. I wish you complete success (my ex husband is still with us!) with your treatment and if I can answer any other questions or help in any way-don't hesitate to contact me. Regards, Sherry Cramer

Normally if the patient has insurance they could get together with their socia
