Costs of care from Helping Hands Barnsley
When you’re looking for home care provision for yourself or a loved one, you want to be absolutely certain that you’re getting the very best value for money. Working out exactly how much your care is going to cost can be a stressful, time-consuming process, particularly when there are all sorts of added fees to consider.
Our home care Barnsley team are committed to making sure your care journey is as straightforward as it possibly can be. That’s why we’re completely up-front about how much our care will cost, and won’t ever ask you to pay for anything that isn’t included in your initial care plan. And, because we’re not a care agency, we pay our carers directly rather than expecting our customers to handle their wages.
Understanding your home care costs
By offering flexible, customisable home care plans, we make sure that our customers always get a type and level of care that meets their every need and ensures their costs aren’t any higher than they need to be. Our carers are all provided with award-winning training and are fully equipped to support people with a wide range of needs, meaning they’re extremely professional and skilled in the care that they provide and can be trusted to get on with the task at hand.
Visiting care from Helping Hands is fully adaptable to your needs. Whether you just need a bit of extra help around the house for 30 minutes per week, or would benefit from having a carer visit several times throughout the day, you’ll always get a package of care that is suited to your personal requirements and preferences.
Our visiting care costs are as follows:
- Prices start from £22.29 per hour for one-to-one home care
- Flexible costs for visits lasting 30, 45 or 60 minutes
- Prices depend on your location and specific care needs
- Overnight care available as well as support provided during weekends and bank holidays
- Call-out fee of £3.50 per visit to cover travel costs
- Free home visit from your local care specialist to assess your needs (for care lasting more than a month) and ongoing support
With live-in care, we’ll match you with one of our compassionate, dedicated carers who will live with you in your home and provide you with round-the-clock support. Whilst live-in care might initially seem on the expensive side, the pricing is actually very comparable to a residential care home – particularly when it’s for a couple.
Live-in care costs start from:
- £1,460 per week for a single person
- £1,700 per week for a couple

At Helping Hands, we directly employ all of our carers, which means you won’t have to worry about making payments and dealing with fiddly paperwork, and you won’t get any unexpected fees or costs sprung upon you. The vast majority of our customers fund their own care, but there are occasions when financial support is made available through local authorities or a non-means-tested Attendance Allowance from the government.
