Rates

A Loving Touch in Senior Care is very well respected around the community. We are a privately and locally owned registry with many recommendations by former clients and families of clients. We coordinate (or refer) mature, qualified, and experienced caregivers to seniors, who then hire the caregiver(s) directly and pay us a separate fee for doing so.

  1. Free Consultation: Usually by phone or in-home
  2. We will set a home visit free of charge to better serve you.
  3. Caregiver compensation: You, the client, and the caregiver determine the compensation.


Clients hire and pay caregivers directly, usually $18 to $25 per hour, depending on level of care needed. Our registry fee is deducted from caregiver(s) hourly rate, and the client pays this amount directly to the registry, based upon 20% of caregivers’ hourly rate.

24 hour shifts are usually $300 to $350 per day. Some hospice and up all night could run more.

Buyout Option: A one-time fee (recommended for long term or permanent caregivers) will save you money if selected within the first 90 days of service: The fee charged is equivalent to one month’s caregivers’ salary.

The state of Oregon views caregivers as domestic employees of clients; we do not track or report caregiver earnings.

We recommend consulting with your tax attorney or accounting professional and/or enlisting a payroll service such as:
