At-Home and Private Nursing & Caretaking Services
Are You Spending More than You Have to?
The Demands of At-Home Nursing and Caretaking
It's no wonder so many women (and some men, too) choose to go into nursing. There will always be sick people, injured people, people having babies, special needs people, elderly people, and many others – in need of nurses and medical care. There will always be hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, medical centers, treatment centers and other facilities far and wide, metro and rural, suburban and small-town that are in dire need of nursing and medical aid staff. Nursing employment - and similar positions and jobs - will always be in demand, making them quite the attractive choice for a career.
But, the absolute number one medical service that is perpetually desperate for nurses and/or caregivers? At-home Care and/or Private Nursing services.
The average cost to hire an At-home Care RN, is a minimum of $30/hour. That doesn't include all the equipment that's needed, medications, supplies, etc. Add to that the yearly total cost of around $50K for consistent at-home care, and it's not hard to see why most everyone needs an opportunity to find "bargain" at-home care services for loved ones.
One-Two Punch: Control the Quality and Cost of Your At-Home CareGiving
To put this in perspective, the cost of childcare and daycare programs for pre-school age children, usually ranges between $500 - $650 per month - which many parents still find difficult to pay for on a regular basis. Compare the daily expense of childcare at about $18-$20 a day, to $30 an HOUR, or $240 a day - and you can see why At-home Care and private in-home nursing might be something you'd want to put up for bid, to get the best services for the best prices. myServiceConnection is exactly the place and the reason for such needs, whether for At-home Nursing, or non-medical At-home Caregiving - which is often a less expensive alternative to hiring a full-time RN or LPN.
When considering who and how to hire At-home Care for your family members and loved ones, remember that many patients who need regular or all-day supervision, do not necessarily need an RN. If your loved one, elderly parent, special needs child, etc - needs someone to look after them, but not necessarily administer specialized in-home medical services - then opting to put a service job up for bid under non-medical caretaking is a prime use of myServiceConnection. Or, perhaps you need primarily non-medical care and supervision, with occasional administered medical services, which you could hire as needed - also through myServiceConnection. Point being, it is typically far less expensive to hire an At-home Care Provider independently, than to go through a service agency. But, most people are reluctant to do this because of the risk factors involved with hiring strangers that are not attached to a formal business. When you use the myServiceConnection platform, it eliminates most of these concerns and issues, by providing you with several to many Service Provider proposals and bids. By using previous Consumer feedback, references provided by the Service Provider on her profile, as well as the option to review all bids and offers received, for even the most delicate of services and Service Providers needed, you have the best of both worlds: cost and service quality.
Necessary but expensive services, like At-home Care for special needs or elderly family members, do not have to be something you are forced to pay to the local service agency. myServiceConnection allows for the amount of money you spend on such services to be much more within your control, as well as the quality of provider you pay. You not only open up options, take back control over what you spend on necessary services, but you also acquire peace of mind in the process.
