What impacts pay rates

Several factors can impact what you pay from type of care to location. First calculate your basic pay rate. Then adjust your rate as needed with the factors listed below.

Amount of care
  • Are you offering regular work, or do you just need an occasional hand?
  • If you only need part-time help, is it for the same days and times each week?
Geographical location
  • Major metropolitan areas tend to have higher rates than rural areas.
  • Suburbs can also have higher rates than rural areas, especially if they serve a large commuter population and are near a major city.
Additional responsibilities
  • Asking your caregiver to help with things like transportation may increase costs or require reimbursement.
  • Basic tidying up and day-to-day functions may be included in your rate-just be sure your caregiver knows what your expectations are.
  • Experienced caregivers get paid more than those with less experience. Paying more for experience can get you someone who better fits your needs.
  • Hiring someone with specific certifications or licensing (such as licensed social workers) may cost more.
