What does being a companion caregiver mean? Unlike babysitters or nannies, companion caregivers generally care for adults who need help with daily activities such as walking, meals, bathing and a variety of other factors. How much should you charge as a companion caregiver? The average hourly rate varies depending on your qualifications and the needs of the person you’re caring for, but you can start to get an idea by looking at Sittercity’s rate calculator for babysitters and nannies.
Many companion caregivers find their jobs through word-of-mouth, but if you’re actively looking for a job it’s good to expand your options. When you want to improve your chances of finding a companion caregiving job, Sittercity is ready to help you find families that are right for you.
