Key ways of determining the average local caregiver hourly rate

You definitely need to think about how much you will charge  before you accept a mandate. It will be much harder to go back on an agreed amount  so you need do your research.

  • Will your home care business charge by the hour, week, month?

Your service rate is typically based on a combination of two factors;

  1. What are the industry wage amounts in your location, and what additional services that you plan on offering your clients. Be ready to justify why you charge more if you are asked.
  2. An excellent way to check your local competitors and what they offer is through local home care websites.  You can also call your competitors directly and use the Home Care Competitor Call Script to find out what they are offering!
