I will having a Stem cell transplant for cancer in January and will be needing a caregiver 2 or 3 days a week 8hrs a day to sit and make sure that I'm taking my medication. Some meal preparation and doctors appointments at Northside Hospital.
What will be the average cost for this service?
Usually rates for a companion or care giver runs between $15-$20 an hour depending on their experience. Best wishes.
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.
I believe an average rate is $15/hour but it depends on your geographic location.
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?
cost at 10.oo hr for 8 hrs is 80. dollorsso 10 x24 hrs. is 240.
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 can set your own priorities of pay, keep in mind , you get what you pay for.
$15 an hour for an inexperienced caregiver and $18 an hour for the experienced caregiver plus gas money to and from doctors appointments.
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.
I feel it would be worth 15 to 20 per hour
all care is including in my payment like, assisting with ADL's, appointments, etc.
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!
I would say $20-$25 an hour because its not full time and because it involves driving.
I would charge 12-15 an hour an hour
10 to 15 an hour
I'm only need to work 3 night shifts a week, no weekend
we absolutely can cover this
It is all on the Full duties that you needs. But, Me a Senior Caregiver between $10-$13 day. I hope you find someone to help you with all your visits. I have a mom that had Breast Cancer and now she intermission. Thanks, Miriam Pichon
At least $20/hr.
I would charge $270 for those 2 days. That's a $50 that you'd be saving
It's always best to have a caregiver after any procedure just in case you can not do for yourself you can always stop the service once your better for inform caregiver you need for short period
I charge $15 as a caregiver to keep you company and happy, make sure all medications are taken, take you to every Dr appointment, and prepare as many meals as you need every day I am caring for you.
I believe $20hr will be appropriate for the services.
Depending upon the amount of care and how much hands on is needed. I ususally charge beteeen 15$ to $20, however, some caregivers will work with you and your budget.
I would estimate around 20.-25 per hour as it is set days and hours.
$250-$350 per 24 hour week.
The average cost for this service will run between $15-20 per hour depending on how much needs to be done for the patient and the home.
I have a rate that I charge due to my experience. I think this all depends on the care giver or the agency
The average cost for this service will probably be $10-11 / an hour.
For me it depends how much care the person need.
The cost for services such as these are dependent on several variables. How much supervision is required? How much driving is involved? What type of meal preparation is preferred? Each detail and need of service dictates the cost of care.
I will charge 22.00 per hour for this service.
I would estimate it to be between fifteen and twenty-five dollars per hour.
Where is Northside hospital
This depends. Most caregivers (myself included) would charge 15$ 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.
16 to 18 per hour
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.
A caregiver with experience working 2-3 day for 8 hours as a sitter pay rate is between 13-15 dollars an hour.
If it is three days then it will cost 480 dollars
On average would charge my base rate of 15
If is a direct pay by the customer cost is to be negosiated between partys
I'm not sure but Im sure there is a percentage through your health coverage
15.00 an hour is my rate for covering that responsibility of help.
The average cost for this service is from $25 to $30 for hour.
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.
$12.00/hr but we can talk about other options if this isn't affordable for you.
Hi there - In my area (St. Louis) a short term need like this usually runs about $20 an hour plus mileage for transportation. Hope this helps! ~Kirstin

$15-$25 per hour
I am a registered nurse, a family nurse practitioner. I am a cancer survivor and I know that care at this point needs to be consistent, kind and present. Where is Northside Hospital? Thank you Kathleen
20 an hour
For the average cost for my service it will atleast $13.00
$240 would be the very cheapest at $10/hr for 3 days. $300 would be more realistic. The distance your caregiver will travel may affect the price. Kay Davidson, Home Companion
I charge $15.00 an hr. This will add up to either 2 days at 240.00 or 3 days at 360.00.
Hi t least $100 a day. Thanks
Caregivers typically charge $18 per hour or more.
If your caregiver charges you between 15 and 20 dollars per hour, your cost will run from 240 at the low end to 320 dollars at the high end for two eight-hour days.
20 a hour
Approximately 10-12 per hour
$15/hr plus federal mileage rate for using your own vehicle for things like shopping and taking client to medical related appointments.
$15 per hour
$13.00 and hour
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.)
$160, and can be negotiable

Depends on the provider of the procedure, sounds like this is a trial procedure and handled by the company or corporation handling this endeavor
The average cost should be 15-20 dollars an hour.
$30.00 an hour

15.00 an hour or a flat rate of a 100 a day no matter the hours.
$20 per hour
$10-$15 an hour depending on the amount of driving.
10 per hour
Contact me on care.com My rates are negotiable. I work with care.com Thank You! Darby
I would say about $12-$15 an hour plus mileage if the caregivers car is used for transportation.
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.
To whom it may concern, I would charge $10.00 an hour.
15.00 a hour
I think around 20 to 25 depends
I would do my best to care for the patient, learn all i can about Stem cell transplant and take very security measure known to take care of the patient. Keep is being willing to learn and that I am. I would gladly prepare meal they can eat and have no problem transporting the patient to the doctors where ever they may be.
Anywhere from $250-$400 a week.
it will start at 18 a hour
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.
$20 to $24 an hour
I can help you.
I would charge at least $15 a hour or would work with you to come up with a amount we agree on.
Where is Northside Hospital? Do you need transportation to and from or just care in your home? What town is your home in? that will help nail down the price.
$20 an hour
Caregiving costs vary depending on hours and services needed. It sounds like you would be needing the most basic level of care which should run you $15-22 per hour. I would budget $360-$550 per week for services. Hope this helps!
$20 per hour.
average rate as a chha is between $15 to $18 per hour depends I think of Experience and [age] maturity good luck
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
Ive worked with a cancer/leukemia patient. Was with them Mon-FRi 7a-7p at $20/hr.
15 to 18 hr
no less them $15 per hour
This depends on what kind of caregiver you need. CNA's are not really qualified for this type of position nor are MA's. Private duty RN's require anywhere from $30 or more per hour.
$700 a week.

The cost that I would charge is $20.00 per hr.
