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 typically best if done 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.
