Live In Care Costs

cost effective and affordable

One of the biggest factors when it comes to choosing how to tackle ongoing care is the cost. Featherbed Live in Care compares very favourably with the cost of residential care, while allowing people to remain at home for as long as possible.

For a couple wishing to remain at home together, live in homecare will cost considerably less than two residential care home fees.

Live in Care from £728 per week

The cost of care depends on the level of personal care required, and the specific costs for any individual will be confirmed following a visit and an assessment by one of our care consultants. We offer the full range of care services, so costs are always determined by your precise needs and requirements.

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

Featherbed charges an initial registration and assessment fee of £120. Once a carer has been booked with a client, a weekly administration fee of £98.40 is invoiced and charged to the client or client’s representative.

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

The Agency fee shown includes VAT.

Bank Holidays

You should expect to pay 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.

Home care costs compared to residential care

Choosing to have care at home is often about more than financial considerations, with the value on having one-to-one, personal care offering a much more compassionate and independent experience. However, finances are always a factor when making a decision about the best approach to care.

As individual care costs are so dependent on your specific needs, it’s difficult to compare costs exactly, but Featherbed Homecare are proud to offer affordable care in the home. Our live in care services start from £728 per week, while a bed in a residential care facility generally starts at over £1,000 per week.

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.
