Cost of Live in Care

How much does 24 hour care cost?

“How much does a live-in carer cost?” is a very commonly asked question. When looking at home care options, price is often a significant consideration and the cost of live in care is very much dependent on the care needs of the person being supported.

Our live-in care costs are tailored to your specific care needs and requirements. You pay for dedicated one-to-one care and you decide the level of care and support you need, for as long as you want it rather than paying a care home where care is shared across many care home residents.

So, how much does a live-in carer cost? Take a look at our breakdown of costs below:

The cost of live-in care is as follows:

Single Person Starts from £1150 per week
Couple Starts from £1400 per week
Respite Care (minimum of 2 weeks) Starts from £1150 per week
Complex Care Starts from £1290 per week

What are 24 hour live-in care costs for couples?

Live-in care can be cost effective for couples, allowing them to stay together at home. Our live in care costs for couples start from £1400 per week and is an affordable alternative to care homes who will charge a weekly fee for both individuals and will be more than our total costs. Live in care means they don’t need to move to a new place, and they’re not alienated from their family, or more importantly each other.

Complex Care Costs

Many families are now choosing a living in carer to support their loved ones at home rather than in a nursing home or hospital and our complex care costs start from £1290 per week. Complex care can include any condition that requires clinical support such as Brain Injury, Parkinson’s or a neurological condition. Our professional trained complex carers are trained specifically to care for those living with a variety of complex care conditions and are there to enable them to retain their independence at home.

Respite Care Costs

For family carers to be good at their job, sometimes they need a break to look after their own wellbeing or go on holiday. Respite care costs start from £1150 per week and is a perfect solution for family members, carers or friends to allow them to take a break from their care duties whilst having the peace of mind that their loved one is receiving the care they need.
