How to pay for your homecare

How you can pay for the services that you or a loved one of yours receive.

Knowing how much to pay

Every two weeks we will send you an invoice. This is a request for payment for the care and support you have received. We can send your invoice by post or email. Let us know which you would prefer by contacting a member of the Bluebird Care team at the Maldon office


When will payment be due?

Every Bluebird Care office operates on its individual terms of business. Most Bluebird Care offices request payment one week following the date of invoice. We recommend that you speak to a member of the Bluebird Care team at the Maldon office.

You choose how you would prefer to pay for your care and support:


Set up a direct debit

If you choose to pay by direct debit we will take a specified amount from your nominated account following the issue of your invoice.

Direct debits offer more flexibility than standing orders.You can choose to pay a regular amount as you would with a standing order. Alternatively, you can choose to pay different amounts each month to pay for the actual cost of your care and support for that period.

If you would like to set up a direct debit, please contact a member of staff from the Maldon office who will send you the documents you need for your bank.

We will help you set up the best payment option for YOU

Make a payment by debit or credit card over the phone

Some Bluebird Care offices are able to take payment from major debit and credit cards over the telephone. To find out if this is available and to arrange this, please contact a member of the Bluebird Care team at the Maldon office.

Bluebird Care does not store any card details. This means that you will need to telephone the office each time you receive an invoice and give details of your payment card and the invoice you wish to make payment on.
