What does short term in home care cost?

I live in oregon but my my cousin, my grandma's cousin actually, had total hip replacement surgery and lives in florida. I left my children for 28 days with family and flew down to help her recover afterwards. I was up through the night every hour with her to help with the restroom, woke up at 6am to get her up every day and did her PT, cooking ,laundry , shopping, bathing and wound care. As well as everything else for her. What would it have cost to hire someone for that?

The average starting cost for home care attendants does vary in each state. Much of the cost is affected by cost of living. If you had gone through an agency you would likely have been looking at between $17+/hour to start, going through an agency.
