I was told if your dealing with medicaid or medicare. You the caregiver must charge the same or 10% less of other caregivers charge in your area. No less then under 10% and no more then your other caregivers charge in your area. And charge so many cents per mile. Live in caregiver rates could go from $500-$4000 a month depending on what care is needed, hours a day and the area.

The majority of caregivers in my area receive $12-14 an hour. They do not pay room and board, in fact if a place to sleep is not provided, or the person being cared for is up and down, needs monitoring through the night the hourly rate increases by $3.00 an hour.

Let's start with minimum wage for the hours you are awake. From that deduct your half of the rent, utilities, food, cable tv and phone. If you have your own car you get mileage for errands. If you use the client's car, you deduct for mileage running your errands. You also deduct any hours you spend on yourself for your personal appointments or yapping on your cell phone. If you like to talk a lot, this can really cut your duty time to only a few hours a day. So what is your total?
