We let you hire your caregiver privately, which means you get to choose who you work with and how much you pay them. With the largest selection of background checked caregivers, full support throughout your care journey, and a tax-compliant payroll service, you can focus on the best care for you and your family.
Our clients have the ability to set their own hourly rate. From there, Kindly Care charges a 20-25% service fee on top of this hourly wage to cover the full range of our services. To ensure compliance and best results, we provide guidance with regards to the minimum wage requirements and the typical rates in your area.
Our services include sourcing and vetting of caregivers, background checks, ensuring minimum wage and overtime compliance, insurance & bonding, household payroll, and year-end tax paperwork. Is your caregiver going on a vacation for two weeks and you need a fill-in? We will help with that too at no additional cost!
Just as you care for the safety of your loved ones, it is our top priority too. Any caregiver you choose to work with has an up-to-date background check. Additionally, we take great care in sourcing and vetting the caregivers in our network. If we wouldn’t feel comfortable letting them care for our own families, we won’t ask them to care for yours.
The IRS classifies privately hired caregivers as employees who are required to have their taxes withheld. At Kindly Care, we understand that the majority of our clients are not tax experts, nor do they want to be. Our payroll service automatically withholds all payroll taxes, and we create signature-ready paperwork that you need come tax season.
Hiring caregivers privately means that you’ll be their W-2 household employer. Kindly Care takes care of all administrative aspects, including opening and closing tax accounts, filing all necessary paperwork, tracking overtime hours, and in certain markets also helping you obtain Workers’ Compensation insurance.
