How Rent-A-Grandma Works

Rent-A-Grandma is a domestic agency that employes women 50 years of age or older. The women "grandmas" are paid at a rate of $16 - $23. The "grandma" then pays the company an employment fee and / or a percentage of their hourly compensation.

The "grandmas" are employed to perform grandma like roles, which may including cooking, cleaning, babysitting, giving advice, organizing, reading books to the kids. All Rent-A-Grandmas are carefully screened before being hired and meet the demand that you would expect from you own grandma.

This is cool! I actually saw this company on Shark Tanks a couple of months ago and it was interesting. I don't think they got any funds from the Sharks but I am sure the publicity will help!

And to answer your question, yes, I sure could use a Grandma, sometimes, especially to help me get my house decluttered!

What an interesting concept, I had never heard about it. Thank you!

Sounds like a fun job, actually. And imagine -- being over 50 as an asset for employment!

I'm not sure about this, some of the tasks seems more in line with home health care. However, the concept I like, but if I ever were to rent a Grandma it would be for the fun things, not for chores.
