Live In Care Costs

cost effective and affordable

Featherbed Live in Care compares very favourably with the cost of residential care.

For a couple wishing to remain at home together, to be cared for by their own live in carer will cost considerably less than two residential care home fees.

Live in Care from £728 per week

Featherbed Homecare is an introductory agency, all our carers are self-employed and have full liability insurance. They are responsible for invoicing their client directly, normally at the end of each week worked.

The agency charges an initial registration and assessment fee of £108. Once a carer has been booked with a client a weekly administration fee of £98.40 will be charged and invoiced to the client or client’s representative.

The carer’s daily rate will depend on the level of personal care required and the actual price of an individual package of care is confirmed once a visit and assessment is carried out by one of our care consultants.

Set out below are typical weekly costs, depending on the level of care required:

The Agency fee shown includes VAT.

Bank Holidays

Carers expect to be paid double time on bank holidays.

Travel Expenses

The carer will  normally charge a client for one way travel only, the maximum being £30.

No travel expenses are charged if the carer is travelling within a 10 mile radius of the client’s home.

People say the nicest things...

We pride ourselves on the fact that the majority of our clients come to Featherbed through the recommendation of other clients or their families.
