Visiting care costs
With visiting care, our carers can visit you from 30 minutes a week to several trips a day. Our carers can support you with bathing in the mornings, preparing dinner in the evening or making sure your milk is ready just before bedtime. Prices for visiting care start from £22.29 per hour, with a call-out fee of £3.50 to cover travel. The prices of your package will depend on your location and needs, and they may vary for overnight care that is provided during weekends and bank holidays.
Live-in care costs
With live-in care, you’ll have one of our dedicated carers stay with you at home, so you can have support 24-hours a day. Our live-in carers do everything a visiting carer does, but are on hand whenever you need them. Whether you need support with the cleaning, the laundry or filling the cat bowl with milk, our carers will promise to support you for as long as you need. Prices start from £1,460 per week for a single person and £1,700 per week for a couple.
