Costs of care from Helping Hands Bolton
Finding a care service that meets your needs and fits your budget can often be a long, stressful process. The pricing of care can often seem quite complex and daunting, especially when there are all sorts of hidden fees and added payments involved. At Helping Hands, we make sure we’re completely transparent and up-front about exactly what our different care services cost, and what you’ll get for your money.
We want to make sure your care journey is as straightforward and enjoyable as possible, which is why we won’t spring any unexpected extra fees on you, and unlike many care agencies we pay all of our carers a wage rather than expecting you to handle their payments. We’ve been delivering dedicated home care Bolton services to customers across England and Wales for over 30 years, so we know exactly how to deliver reliable, value-for-money care that gives you the quality of life you deserve.
Understanding your home care costs
We’re always reviewing and improving our industry-leading care services to ensure they’re always offering the very best value for money. Your Helping Hands home care plan will be completely tailored to your particular needs and preferences, meaning you’ll always be getting the exact type and level of care that you require.
Our visiting care plans start from just 30 minutes a week, and are completely adaptable around your condition and your circumstances. Our expertly trained, compassionate carers will go above and beyond to ensure you’re fully supported around the home, and can assist you with anything you need – from assisting with medication and doing the laundry, to providing personal care and helping you get out and about.
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
Live-in care gives you the opportunity to have one of our wonderful carers come to live with you in your home and provide you with 24/7 support, meaning you’ll get all the help you need whenever you need it. Live-in care can initially seem like quite a pricy option, but the cost is actually very comparable to that of residential care – especially when there are two people being cared for. You’ll benefit from one-to-one care and companionship from a friendly, professional carer who will support you as much or as little as you wish. Our carers know the importance of personal space, so whilst they’ll always be there to help, they’ll also be discreet and respectful of your home environment.
Live-in care costs start from:
£1,460 per week for a single person
£1,700 per week for a couple
