So, how much money can you really save using Keep Safe Care Direct to hire your own caregiver? It depends on a lot of factors, but know this for sure: A Private Duty agency is going to require at least 20 hours per week of care, and charge a minimum of $27.00 per hour (while paying their caregivers under $10/hr) In states with a $15 minimum wage, your rate will be over $35 per hour. At Keep Safe Care Direct, there are NO MINIMUMS! Agencies might tease you with a low rate, but before you know it, you will be spending a minimum of $600 per week for care. And you know what else? YOU did not get to chose that caregiver, and you most likely will get a multitude of caregivers to come and care for your loved ones.
