How Much Can I Earn?
The following chart shows the estimated salary on job board in the past 24 months, Nov 2017. The figure also comes from the 2016 Bureau of Labor Statistics, a U.S. government agency.

Meanwhile, with Gravity Care, the majority of your pay is yours to keep – and considering the low cost of insurance and background check through our discounted providers, that adds up to a lot.
Meet an Ever-Increasing Demand
Cost of care to assist with Activities of Daily Living is on the rise, and shows no sign of slowing down. The chart below illustrates Genworth’s average daily ADL cost between 2017 and 2021 for nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and home care providers.
Costs are increasing due to a number of considerations: higher labor costs, tightened Medicare rules, and overhead, to name just a few.
Additionally, the cost of aging is going up. Increasingly, families are finding it a more economical alternative to arrange for home care, instead of looking into a facility. That’s where Gravity Care comes in.
