- In-home care for well and/or mildly ill children and adults is $6 an hour (for up to three care recipients) with a four-hour minimum
When one of our kids gets sick, my husband and I scramble to figure out our plan. We don’t have family nearby so it means one of us taking the day off or working alternate schedules. Either way, it’s always exhausting. When I discovered the back-up benefit, it was a lifesaver. We've used it multiple times, with excellent caregivers each time.
