Payroll Estimate – Find out approximately how much it will cost in payroll to hire a private live-in, legally and on the books. The estimate includes the live-in’s pay according to state and federal labor law, all of your payroll taxes, and an optional payroll service to handle all of your employment obligations. All final pay rates, services, and schedules are determined between the household employer and the employee.
Less Cost Than A Home-Care Agency.
A privately hired live-in cost about half of the price of what an agency charges for 24-hour coverage. A live-in cost about the same as what people pay a local home-care agency to staff 8-12 hours of daily care for, but the live-in is there and on-call for up to 24 hours.
More Care Than A Nursing Home.
It is estimated that Assisted Living complexes have 1 caregiver for every 25+ residents to share at any given moment. Nursing homes are a little better, at an estimated one caregiver to 15 residents. Live-in is a premium service at a 1 caregiver to 1 care recipient ratio, and in most states is less expensive than a nursing home.
