Our Pricing Explained

Pricing home care services usually requires you to fill-in a long form and go through phone calls and interviews. That’s in the past! Here at The Helper Bees, we help you identify the kind of help you need based on your profile and how much you are likely to pay.  Prices are ultimately set between between the client and individual helper, but we provide guidance on what can be expected.  We’re proud to announce that helpers on The Helper Bees platform are paid double the industry’s average.  This guarantees their happiness and translates to a higher quality service for you. This comes at no cost to you. We operate a different business model than traditional agencies and this is because of our technology and revolutionary approach to home care.
