How To Determine Reasonable Compensation For A Family/Friend Caregiver

« Previous


To determine reasonable compensation for a caregiver who is a family member or friend:

  • Start by listing what the caregiver will do (the services he or she will provide).
  • Contact several local home-care agencies and/or geriatric-care managers and find out what they would charge for similar services. Keep written notes about the person with whom you speak, the date, contact information, and what you are told. Keep your notes with your duplicate original of the executed agreement in case it's needed later as proof that the compensation agreed to is reasonable.
