Caregivers in the private sector allow families and individuals to receive private and tailor-made care suitable for their needs and requirements. It may be that a family chooses to look to have private care to give peace of mind that their loved one is getting one-to-one attention and around the clock care.
But what is the average cost of caregivers? What salary would they expect? It varies from country to country, and will also vary depending on experience and if the position is live in or live out. This handy guide gives some indications of the rate for private caregivers in London and around the world.
Live in Caregivers
As this sliding graph demonstrates, the higher the level of experience provided by the caregiver, the higher the salary. Due to live in positions providing accommodation, bills and often food and transport, there is always a bit of flexibility and wiggle room on the salary. The above rates are quoted in British pounds and are subject to change depending on the country and package being offered.
Live Out Caregivers
With a live out position, the salaries increase as the caregiver will have to travel to and from work, and also cover their cost of living. The hours, package and their experience will also adjust the cost of caregivers. The above rates are quoted in British pounds and are subject to change depending on the country and package being offered.
Part Time Caregivers
Some families require more flexible care, and part-time options are suited to less intensive care positions. The hourly rate above (quoted in British pounds) will adjust depending on the experience, package and commute distance etc.
