Hourly visiting care at home: FAQs
Where do you provide hourly visiting care?
Hourly care can be provided throughout the whole of England, Scotland and Wales.Save
Can you provide hourly care for less than an hour?
We believe that, in order to truly enjoy the benefits of high quality home care, care should not be provided for anything less than an hour a day. There needs to be sufficient time given to gaining a true understanding of individual needs and support required.
What is the cost of hourly care?
The hourly rate charged is dependent on the type of service needed but is typically between £17-£20 per hour.
What happens if my needs change and the support I require increases?
If the level of care you require increases to cover the majority of a 24-hour period, we would recommend that you move to a high quality live-in care service. This is a more cost effective option and provides higher levels of support as well as specialist care of medical conditions.
