About Home Care

Service costs

The cost of home care services such as nursing, personal care and cleaning services can vary significantly from provider to the next.

How much will I have to pay for home care services?

It really depends on the service provider. There may be different levels of expertise or experience of the worker. There can also be surcharges depending on the time of the day or the day of the week you require the services.

Understanding these costs can help you make sure you get the most out of your funding.

How can you compare these service costs?

It’s difficult to know if you’re paying a fair price when you can’t compare pricing for the services that you need.

At CareCompare, we show a comparison of the hourly cost of common services like nursing, personal care and cleaning.

We also include a description of the services so you can easily see the type of tasks that could be included.

When talking to your shortlisted home care providers, make sure you ask the following questions about their service costs:

  • What level of expertise does your staff have (particularly nursing and respite staff)
  • Are there any surcharges on top of the advertised fee for evening or weekend work?
  • Does the service provider take a percentage of the hourly fee?
