Why has MA become the most expensive state for non medical custodial

Good question. 

Home care agencies have largely stopped providing live-in care services in Massachusetts due to major changes to labor laws instituted in 2015 by the MA Domestic Workers Bill of Rights, and the federal FLSA changes . They have replaced live-in services with 24 hr care because it is safer for them legally, and the profit margin is greater when they split the days into smaller shifts and multiple employees to reduce the new manadatory OT laws for domestic workers. 

So what happens now is that home care agencies pay multiple caregivers, each working 8-12 hour shifts for the full 24 hrs. Add to that MA has become one of the highest min wage states in the country, and its "Domestic Workers Bill of Rights" and what you wind up with is the perfect storm. 

High min wages + 30% more paid hours each day + unique domestic worker OT laws = The most expensive state in the nation to grow old in... or atleast age in place at home.

Is There A Solution?

Grandma Joan can help you! If your situation allows for the live in to sleep during their unpaid sleepshift , then we can help save you a boat load of money. Why pay for 24 hrs when you only really need 16 hrs?  Why have 6-8 strangers coming and going, when you can have just 1 stay there for consistancy and bonding with the care recipient ? 

If thats the case, then a live-in caregiver will cost you an averasge of $125,000 LESS PER YEAR in Massachusettes than a home care agency provideing 24 hr coverage.

The live-in can work monthly (up to 6.5 days a week) for that rate. Some exceptions apply. Our quoted rates include all required MA payroll taxes, and our partner payroll service to handle all your payroll obligations for you. You can also get MA Workers comp insurance for about $500 a year for 100% liability protection and total peace of mind.
