“When it comes to the cost of your Home Care, we like to keep it simple”

Understanding the costs associated with home care services can be overwhelming, which is why we strive to simplify the process. We recognise the challenges involved in arranging home care for yourself or a loved one and aim to make it as stress-free as possible, especially when it comes to understanding costs.

The pricing for home care services varies depending on individual needs. Visiting care is typically charged at an hourly rate, while live-in care, also known as “24-hour care,” is quoted at either a daily rate for short-term respite or a weekly rate for ongoing care. Our team is available to discuss the level of care that best suits your needs and to determine the financial feasibility of home care for you and your family.

Paying for your own Care

Many of our clients choose to self-fund their home care services. While this option may not be feasible for everyone, we understand the challenges that can arise. We are here to support you and your family in developing a care package that suits your needs and circumstances. Our goal is to ensure that you receive the necessary support when it is most beneficial for you. Rest assured that your care plan can be adjusted as needed to accommodate any changes in your preferences or requirements.

Direct payment Cards

We accept Direct Payments for our services. If you receive financial assistance from social services and have opted for a direct payment arrangement, you can use these funds to cover the costs of our services.
