WHAT ARE YOUR CAREGIVER RATES?
One of the most frequent questions we hear is “What are your caregiver rates per hour?” This is a difficult question to answer without having an understanding of your needs. Determining if our services match your needs is typical best during a phone or home assessment. Many families do not understand that Home Care Agencies have the option of paying employment taxes and workers compensation. If the agency chooses not to cover these expenses then the burden/risk become the responsibility of the client and their family. Arizona does NOT license home care and there is a wide variety of services offered.

Care by Visit is helpful for seniors needing 45-90 minutes of assistance every day or every other day. Caregivers provide medication reminders, shower visits and wake ups/turn downs. Because of the short duration, caregivers are limited to Care by Visit services.
Hourly Home Care allows seniors to continue live in their own home while using Adultcare Assistance Homecare caregivers on an hourly or as-needed basis. These caregiver rates begin at 4 hours. As your needs change, you may receive discounted rates on longer shifts.
24 hour home care allows your loved one to live in the comfort of home and safely maintain as much independence as possible. With around-the-clock care, a caregiver is always watching over your loved one, offering emotional support, reducing fall risk and assisting in ADLs.
Mileage: When a caregiver uses their own vehicle to transport the client, the standard rate of 75 cents per mile will be charged. When a caregiver uses the client’s vehicle for transport and running client’s errands, there is no additional expense. We recommend the client review their auto policy to ensure that caregivers are covered drivers.
Holidays: Holiday caregiver rate is time-and-a-half. Holidays include New Year’s Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas & New year’s Eve.
Immediate Staffing: Overtime caregiver rate is time-and-a-half. Immediate staffing requests (less than 48 hour notice) occasionally require that caregivers receive the overtime rate.
