There are so many questions that come to mind when organising care for you or your loved one. For example, how much does it cost? Or am I eligible for any funding? No need to worry as our home care Bromley team is here to put your mind at ease. At Helping Hands, we believe in being upfront about our costs from the beginning, so you know exactly what you are paying for.
At Helping Hands, we have been providing care at home since 1989. Our carers will support you in your day-to-day life and always promote your independence. With our care team, you’ll gain more than just a carer, you’ll always have a friend and companion by your side.
At Helping Hands, we have always delivered care as a private home care agency, which means we are always upfront about our costs. We believe in transparency, so you won’t be faced with any surprises when you receive your bill at the end of the month. All our home care plans are provided on a visiting care and live in care basis.
With all our care packages, you’ll receive a free home visit from your local care specialist to assess your needs and requirements (for care lasting more than a month). You’ll continue to receive ongoing support from a dedicated member of our Bromley care team to make sure you are satisfied with the care you are receiving.
Visiting care costs
Visiting care is available from 30 minutes a week or longer. Our carers can support you with your weekly shop, help you get ready for bed in the evening, prepare your meals and much more. Prices start from £25.27 per hour for one-to-one personal home care Bromley, with a call-out fee of £3.50. This covers the travel costs. The prices depend on your location and your specific needs. Prices will also vary for overnight care and support provided during weekends and bank holidays.
Live-in care costs
You can benefit from live-in care if you need person-centred care throughout the day and night. Having one of our compassionate carers in your home means you can have access to the support you need to live independently and comfortably in the place you love most. Whether you need help with personal care or some companionship, we will be there every step of the way. Prices start from £1,599 per week for a single person and £1,839 per week for a couple.
We understand how confusing it may get when it comes to funding options that may be available to you. That’s why our friendly care team is available seven days a week to answer any queries you may have. Depending on your circumstances you may be eligible for funding through your local authority or the NHS. You can also access our FAQs page on costs and funding for more advice. If you are still unsure, our Bromley care team is on hand to advise you on how to get the best out of your care plan.
Although many of our customers pay for their care privately, there are many benefits available to help ease the financial burden. You may be entitled to funding from your local authority, but it is best to find out as soon as possible so you set up your care plan as soon as possible. Our customers who are 65 or over also qualify for Attendance Allowance, a tax-free benefit and Pensions Credit. You can also get more information on the benefits that may be available to you on our website.
