An Introduction to Home Care Costings

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

 

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.

We are not a care agency, so you do not have to worry about agency fees or retainers.

We accept direct payments. If you are receiving funding through social services and have opted for direct payments, we are 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, with live-in care 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 and your family.

 

Although most of our families are paying for their care privately, there may be the opportunity for you to access home care funding from either your Local Authority or Clinical Commissioning Group. In these cases, we work with the funding body to get the support you need in place and give you a better quality of life at home.
