COSTS & FUNDING
We believe in offering cost effective services to also lessen the burden on clients and their families. We do not believe in any hidden or additional charges besides the basic costs of care. We are proud to be one of the most competitively priced care providers in the UK.
We have included some indicative costs below for some of the most common services. The final costs of any Care Package can only be determined after a full need’s assessment has been completed and agreed.
Our Assessment Team will also advise you of any funding that maybe available to you from your Local Authority and other statutory benefits.
Personal Care Costs
Weekdays – Our prices for personal care in the home start from £18.50 per hour Weekdays (30-minute visits also available). Weekends, Nights and Bank Holidays are charged differently, and these prices will be advised during the assessment.
Respite Care Costs
Prices for respite care start from £250 per day

Our prices for 24-hour support from a live-in carer start from £950 per week for a single person and £1,250 per week for a couple
Local authority’s social services department have a responsibility of assessing your care needs. Once you have been assessed and your Local Authority have identified a need for care, they will assess your finances to work out how you may be entitled to receive to fund your care.
You will be given a variety of options including the care you require, availability of services in the local area and providers available.
Local Authorities will choose to arrange and manage your care or you will receive a personal budget where you will be given money to pay for services and can choose your own provider giving you greater control and choice.
If you require Residential Care, Local Authorities will assess your finances and include the value of your assets. If you qualify the Local Authority will meet your care costs but if you do not qualify you will need to fund your own Residential Care Costs.
If you are not eligible for funding from your Local Authority, there may be other options available to you. If you are eligible there are various benefits provided by the Government that could help you meet the cost of funding your care.

If you are funding you own care or Self-Funding Care this means that you are paying, you are your own care without help from the Local Authority. This gives greater control and decision making regarding the type of care you receive and providers to choose from.
Direct Payments was introduced by the government to help give individuals more choice and control on the care they receive and the providers they can choose from.
The payments for care are made directly to the individual after assessment by the local authority for the individual’s care needs. After the payment has been made it is now up to the individual to arrange and organise for their care.
