Live In Care Costscost 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:
Example 17 day week
- £630 per week (£90 per day) to your carer plus £98.40 per week Agency fee
- Total cost £728.40 per week
Example 27 day week
- £665 per week (£95 per day) to your carer plus £98.40 per week Agency fee
- Total cost £763.40 per week
Example 37 day week

- Total cost £798.40 per week
The Agency fee shown includes VAT.
Carers expect to be paid double time on bank holidays.
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.
