Hourly visiting care at home:  FAQs

Hourly care can be provided throughout the whole of England, Scotland and Wales.

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.

The hourly rate charged is dependent on the type of service needed but is typically between £17-£20 per hour.

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.
