Costs of care from Helping Hands Reading

At Helping Hands, we’ve got over 30 years’ experience in providing compassionate, dedicated home care to customers across England and Wales. In that time, it’s safe to say we’ve become experts in helping people to live more independently, comfortably and confidently in the homes that they love. Our care services focus on ensuring our customers are allowed to continue enjoying the best possible quality of life so that they’re able to spend more time on their normal routines and hobbies. We’re able to offer both visiting care and live-in care on a flexible basis that is fully tailored to your personal circumstances, needs and preferences.

Visiting care costs

Our dedicated one-to-one visiting care rates start from £22.29 per hour

Visiting care starts from as little as 30 minutes per week. Most prices will vary depending on your personal care needs, and your location may also affect the rates we’re able to offer you. Overnight care will also be priced differently, as will weekend and bank holiday support.

Every visit carries a £4.25 travel fee.

Costs for live in care start from:

£1,460 per week for a single person

£1,700 per week for a couple

Care funding options available in Reading

To find out whether you might be eligible for care funding, contact your local council in Reading – they’ll be able to perform a means assessment to determine whether you qualify for financial assistance, and can advise on possible other routes that you might be able to take to help pay for your care. It may also be worth reaching out to an independent expert on care funding to see whether they’re able to highlight any other funding options that could be available to you.

Benefits available to you in Reading

Typically, our customers pay for their care privately, but we do accept ‘top-up’ payments if you’re eligible for funding from your local council. You can visit the FAQ section on our website to find out more about what benefits and funding you may qualify for, as well as how to go about paying for your care.
