Is home care cheaper than a care home? 

In many instances, home care can work out cheaper than a care home. With our visiting rates starting at £25 per hour, a few regular visits at the times that suit you can be a cost-effective way of receiving the support you need whilst continuing to enjoy your own home. And, if you’re a couple, live-in care starts from £1,855 per week, which is a comparable per-person price to residential care.

Can I get financial support to pay for my care?

In England, the threshold above which you’ll have to pay for your care in full is £23,250.

If your assets, including most investments and savings, are greater than £23,250, your local authority will consider you able pay for your care yourself. It is worth noting that for integrated care within your own home, the value of your property will not be taken into account.

If you’re uncertain about your status, you can request a Financial Assessment from your local council to see if you qualify for help towards your care costs. Your assessment will be an evaluation of your financial means, and will calculate whether:
