LIVE-IN CARER COSTS AND FUNDING

Couple talking about live-in care

Able Community Care has been providing Live-in Care services since 1980 and we have helped many clients and families by carefully explaining our 24-hour Live-In Care cost structures, the day to day options we can provide and guiding them through any financial entitlements that may be available to help pay for care. 

We help by directing people to other expert financial professionals (statutory, voluntary and independent), who will work with our clients to prepare any relevant application forms or documentation required by possible funding sources. 

This will help towards the cost of care and give you peace of mind that your loved one will receive domiciliary care in their own home - a true alternative to moving into a local authority residential care home. 

Cost-Effective Live-in Care.


Looking for cost-effective personal care? Live-in care could be more affordable compared to some hourly care or fees charged by some nursing homes. Quality Home Care Support at a Sensible CostDepending on which statistic you look at, the average cost of an hours care support in a person's home ranges between £15 and £20 per hour.

These hourly rates may be even higher when evenings, weekends and Bank Holidays are taken into consideration.Covid-19 has increased the interest in-home care as opposed to care support in a residential care setting and many families are now investigating home care as an alternative to facility care. For individuals who have high dependency care needs and require support over many hours each day, the care cost can be expensive. Taking an average hourly rate of £17.50 per hour, 8hours care per day gives a weekly cost of £980 per week.

Additionally, night sitters may also be needed. A sensible alternative to consider is to have a Live-in Care Support Service offering domestic, personal and social care support throughout the 24-hour period. Able Community Care has been providing Live-in Care Support packages for 40 years providing a true alternative to moving into a care home. The average cost is the equivalent of having a weekly care package of 56 hours in a week i.e. £980 per week.
