That's a hard question to answer. A lot depends on what the caregiver is required to do. And a lot depends on where you live. If you live in a large metroplex like New York City, Chicago, Boston, LA, Washington DC then the rates would be much higher than a small or medium size area.

I live in the Washington DC burbs and my Dad was paying $30 an hour [time & half for holidays]. Dad's caregivers would help him shower, help him dress, cook his meals, do laundry and light housekeeping, drive him to doctor appointments or to the barber shop, set out his pills to take, keep him company.

Also it depends on the Agency, the one Dad used was licensed, bonded, insured, had workman's comp for their employees, and other benefits... and worked out of an office.
