What are the recommended wages?

Housecleaning:

  • Either one or two workers can complete the first time/deep cleaning at the rate of $90 per worker for the first three hours and $25 every additional hour.  The pay rate for a basic cleaning is $85 per worker for the first three hours with an additional $20/hr for every additional hour. We also offer a $5 discount if you are able to provide all of the supplies that are necessary to complete the job

Childcare:

  • The recommended minimum hourly rate for care of one child starts at $15.00 per hour.  The final wage (which may be higher based on your scheduling needs and expected tasks as well as the provider’s experience) would be negotiated directly with the worker of your choice.

Nanny Share:

  • Although we do not have a family matching service for nanny shares, we can refer childcare providers who are open to share-care!  The recommended minimum hourly rate for two-child childcare shared between two families is $20.00 per hour, with each family contributing $10/hour.

Adult/ Elder Care:

  • Caring Hands recommends a starting minimum wage of $15 per hour with a 3 hour per shift minimum.
