Cost of Convalescent Care

What is Convalescent Care?

Convalescent care is short-term support provided by professional carers in the comfortable, familiar surroundings of your own home.

At Helping Hands, we’ve got over 30 years’ experience in enabling our customers to live more independently, confidently and comfortably through our dedicated home care services. When you choose us as your care partner, we’ll be able to provide you with a fully bespoke convalescent care plan that is perfectly suited to your needs. Whether you simply require a few hours of visiting care every week, or would benefit from the round-the-clock support offered by live-in care, we’ll make sure you’re never left feeling isolated or unsupported.

How much does Convalescent Care Cost?

Convalescent care from Helping Hands is priced at the same rate as our regular visiting care. When you choose us for convalescent care, you’ll get a package of care that is completely tailored to your personal circumstances and preferences. Your local care experts will be able to provide you with a more specific quote once they’ve had the opportunity to meet you, but here’s a guide to how much our convalescent care costs:

  • Prices for one-to-one personal home care start from £25.27 per hour
  • Prices are flexible across 30, 45 and 60 minute slots
  • Our pricing structure will vary slightly depending on your specific care needs and your location, and overnight, weekend and bank holiday care will also be priced differently
  • To ensure our carers are properly compensated, each visit carries a call-out fee of £4.25
  • For care lasting more than one month, your local care specialist will provide a free home visit to assess your needs, and you’ll receive ongoing support from a dedicated contact to ensure you’re happy with our service

Our live-in care rates vary depending on the level of care required, but costs start from:

  • £1,779 per week for a single person
  • £1,779 per week for a couple

Possible Funding Options

Because we’re a private care provider, rather than a care agency, we directly employ all our carers. This is beneficial for you because, unlike many agencies, we’re completely upfront about the total cost of your care and we’ll never ask you to pay for any hidden extras or unexpected add-ons.

Most of our customers pay for their care privately, but we do also accept direct payments if you’re eligible for funding. Please feel free to call our care advisers seven days a week for further guidance regarding your funding options, as well as following the helpful links on our website.

When To Consider Community Care

Whether you’re recovering from an illness, have experienced an unexpected medical setback or have been discharged from hospital earlier than expected, convalescent care gives you essential support at the times you need it most. We’re normally able to provide you with one of our wonderful carers within 24 hours of your initial phone call, meaning you won’t ever be left feeling isolated or unsupported.
