Clients pay their caregivers directly and caregiver rates are negotiated with the caregiver prior to the start of care. By Your Side Home Care will supply you with rate ranges for caregiver services in your geographic area. We have found that our customers appreciate having control over the compensation their caregivers receive for the very important work they do, and for the varying care needs they provide.

A separate fee is paid to By Your Side Home Care for the administrative tasks we perform for our clients. By Your Side Home Care fees vary and are based on a variety of factors, such as the number of hours and care option levels requested. Specific examples of administrative services include, but may not be limited to, the following:
- Ongoing access to caregiver referrals
