Couple talking about live-in care costs

Live-in Care Costs

Able Community Care has been providing Live-in Care services since 1980.  We have helped many clients and families by carefully explaining our 24-hour Live-In Care cost structures.

We present the day-to-day options we can provide and guide them through any financial entitlements that may be available to help pay for their care. We help by directing people to other expert financial professionals (statutory, voluntary, and independent). These professionals will work with our clients to prepare any relevant application forms or documentation required by possible funding sources.

This will help towards Live-in Carer costs and give you peace of mind that your loved one will receive domiciliary care in their own home. We believe this is a true alternative to moving into a  residential care home.

How much does a live-in carer cost?

Looking for cost-effective professional personal home care? Live-in care could be more affordable compared to some hourly care or fees charged by some care homes. Quality home care support at a sensible cost. The average cost of an hour of care support in a person's home ranges between £15 and £25 per hour, which may be higher in rural and remote locations.

These hourly rates may be even higher when evenings, weekends, and Bank Holidays are taken into consideration.
