MA Live-in Care

​​Pay 45% Less 

Our MA clients pay an average of 45% less for a live-in caregiver 
vs using a local home care agency for unneeded 24 hr care. 

Why has MA become the most expensive state for non medical custodial

Good question. 

Home care agencies have largely stopped providing live-in care services in Massachusetts due to major changes to labor laws instituted in April of 2015 by the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights . They have replaced live-in services with 24 hr care, even when it is not needed, becuase the profit margin is so much greater when they split the days into smaller shifts and multiple employees to reduce the new manadatory OT laws for domestic workers. 

So what happened is home care agencies now pay multiple caregivers, each working 8-12 hour shifts for the full 24 hrs EVEN when live-in with one person is better for the family and care recipient. Add to that MA has become one of the highest min wage states in the country, and its "Domestic Workers Bill of Rights" and what you wind up with is the perfect storm. 

High min wages + 30% more paid hours each day + unique domestic worker OT laws = The most expensive state in the nation to grow old in... or atleast age in place at home. Instead of $200-$250 a day for a live-in caregiver in Massachusetts the same coverage now costs $500-$600 a day when going through a home care agency. 

Is There A Solution?

Grandma Joan can help you! If your situation allows for the live in to sleep during their unpaid sleepshift , then we can help save you a boat load of money. Why pay for 24 hrs when you only really need 16 hrs?  Why have 6-8 strangers coming and going, when you can have just 1 stay there for consistancy and bonding with the care recipient ? 

If thats the case, then a live-in caregiver in MA will cost you $275 for Level 1 or2 and $325 per day for Level 3. They can work monthly (up to 6.5 days a week) for that rate. Some exceptions apply. That rate includes all required MA payroll taxes, and our partner payroll service to handle all your payroll obligations for you. You can also get MA Workers comp insurance for about $300 a year for 100% liability protection and total peace of mind.
