Are you considering a career in home care? Many benefits are available to personal care assistants (PCAs) who work through Best Care, including flexible hours, PTO, holiday pay, and more.
If you’re taking care of a family member, you’ll also benefit from the added sense of security that comes from knowing your loved one’s health and wellness are in the best hands possible.
As with any job, it’s essential to consider how much you can earn for your services as a family caregiver. For example, if you live in Minnesota, here’s what you need to know about getting paid.
How Much Does a PCA Make in Minnesota?
On July 1. 2022, the MN Department of Human Services raised the minimum wage of PCAs to $15.25. That means you legally have to be paid that amount or higher for every hour of work you do.
Some home care agencies may provide different family caregiver pay rates for PCA Choice and Traditional PCA workers; however, Best Care does not differentiate between PCA Choice and Traditional PCA in how we treat and staff our caregivers.
As a result, every employee will receive the same hourly pay rate and benefits, regardless of whether they are PCA Choice or Traditional caregivers.
Other Benefits You Can Expect
When it comes to being a PCA, it is not just about how much caregivers make. At Best Care, we’ve made it our mission to improve the lives of caregivers as much as possible so that they can concentrate their energy on providing the best level of care.
To do so, we have a wealth of resources and benefits to offer. Take the hassle out of admin with our Timesheet App, and have open access to a friendly team ready to support you in any way we can.
We also offer flexible hours that fit both you and your recipient of care, as well as PTO and holiday pay. Even family caregivers deserve time off, and we make it easy to rest up so you can continue the life-changing work you do every day.
