The Cost of Home Care

The Cost of Home Care

Please call to speak to us if you have any questions about the type of support and care you are looking for and any of the costs that would be associated with us delivering our award-winning service.

Importantly we would like to mention that we do not charge a fee for any initial meeting or for us to carry out a care assessment. We are very transparent, and we only charge from the first visit of care and for all subsequent care that is delivered, no set up fees and no VaT.

We will put together a detailed plan for each customer which, as well as setting out the care to be delivered, also shows the weekly costs. Some people will be entitled to assistance with the cost of their care either from your local authority or clinical commission group (NHS). Please ask us for more details and we can share our knowledge and help signpost when necessary. 

Staying at Home

Weekdays: Hourly - £29.25

Weekends: Hourly - £31.25

Live-in Care: £190 to £250 per 24-hour period

Our Live-in charges vary, depending upon the complexity of care and level of support required.

*(The customer is responsible for budgeting £50 per week for food allowance)

Bank Holidays: Hourly - Double Charge per hour
