Cost of Care

Understanding your home care funding options can seem daunting, that’s why we try to keep it as simple as possible.

An Introduction to Home Care Costs

We understand how stressful it can be organising care for yourself or a loved one. That’s why we’ll aim to keep things as simple and straight-forward as possible when it comes to costs.

We are:

  • Upfront and transparent about our home care costs. There are no hidden fees or lengthy notice periods. 
  • Not an agency, so you don’t have to worry about agency fees or retainers.
  • Able to accept direct payments. If you’re receiving funding through social services and have opted for direct payments, we’re able to accept top-ups to these payments.

Depending on your needs, home care costs will vary. Visiting care is charged at an hourly rate while live-in care is quoted on either a daily rate (for short-term respite) or weekly rate for ongoing care. We can discuss the level of care that is right for you and whether the cost of home care is financially sustainable for you or your loved one.

Although the majority of families are paying for their care privately, it may be possible for you to access funding from your Local Authority (Social Services) or Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). In these cases, we work closely with the funding body to ensure you get the right support to give you a better quality of life at home.

An introduction to Hourly Visiting Care costs

For care from as little as 30 minutes per day all the way up to four  calls throughout the day, visiting care enables you to receive support that suits you. And with care that’s flexible that can adapt to your changing needs, you can rest assured that you will always have a carer there when you need them.

From the start, we’ll give you a clear picture of how much care will cost which will be confirmed once a plan of care has been agreed.

Our visiting care fees vary across the country but start from as little as £25.00 per hour

An introduction to Live-in Care costs

For more intensive support, live-in care could be the ideal solution if you require someone to assist you round-the-clock with your care needs. Living with you in your home, your very own live-in carer will provide one-to-one support tailored to your exact requirements, for example if you have a type of dementia – giving you peace of mind that you always have help available should you need it.

Live-in care can either be ongoing or in the form of respite care, which is for short-term solutions usually lasting less than four weeks.

Ongoing live-in care prices start from £920 per week for one person and £1,105 per week for a couple. To find out more about live-in care click here
