Cost of home care with ConsidraCare

Caring for seniors in Ontario is not cheap and can cost thousands of dollars per month.

Depending on the type of care needed, senior care costs can include caregiver wages and benfits, and the costs of background checks, interviewing, training, coordination, taxes, government charges and insurance and cost of housing for facilities based care.

Although home care agencies do not publish their prices, at ConsidraCare we believe that the clients should get full visibility into how much the care for their loved ones can cost, so they can make the right decision.

You can use the senior care cost calculator below to estimate the weekly budget for ConsidraCare's home care services for seniors.

You can also get a full care service price breakdown on our pricing page.

Frequently Asked Questions

For live-in care, we manage the payroll and debit the caregivers’ payroll, along with our fee from the client’s bank account every two weeks. We remit all the required payments to CRA and WSIB on the client’s behalf. We partner with Heart Payroll , a leading Canadian payroll services provider, for payroll processing.

Clients who already get government assistance, such as services from the LHIN in Ontario are exempt from HST on private care services. We will not charge them HST.

Clients who employ caregivers under our live-in care plan, only have to pay HST on our management fee, not the caregiver’s complete payroll.
