To get some idea of the going rate of pay in your area, start by looking in your local paper, where there are usually
wanted ads for Agency Carers
showing the rate of pay offered. Then compare with the rates of pay asked by
Carers here on SimpleNeeds.
Making a private arrangement means both parties have to negotiate and agree on a rate,
and then the client has to see to it that the carer gets paid via cash or cheques or bank transfers.
Paying cash requires a trip to the cash machine, and cheques require to be presented at a bank.
Best is the the bank transfer.
