Exploring Home Care Costs

At Ndima Healthcare, we understand that considering home care costs can be daunting. Our mission is to provide compassionate support and guidance as you navigate this important decision, ensuring that you and your loved ones feel empowered and informed throughout the process.

Understanding Home Care Costs

Home care costs vary across the UK, typically ranging from £19 to £34 per hour for domiciliary care services. For example, if you require three hours of home care per day at a rate of £19 per hour, you can expect to pay £399 per week.

Live-in care fees generally start at around £900 to £1,400 per week, but they can reach up to £2,000 per week depending on your specific needs and required services. For instance, if you need 24-hour live-in care at a rate of £1,100 per week, this would amount to approximately £4,730 per month or £56,760 per year.

Accessing Financial Support

Your local council may contribute to the cost of your home care following a needs assessment and financial evaluation. The amount you'll pay depends on factors such as your income, savings, and assets.

If you're facing financial challenges in covering home care expenses, don't hesitate to reach out to your local council for assistance. They can offer guidance on available funding options and support services tailored to your needs.

Arranging Home Care Services

If you're eligible for financial support, your local council can arrange home care services for you. Alternatively, you can opt for direct payments to arrange home care yourself.

Self-Funding Home Care Costs

If you're self-funding your home care, you can arrange your own care services. Home care typically costs around £25 per hour, but prices may vary depending on your location and the type of care needed. It's advisable to explore multiple home care agencies to compare costs and find the best fit for your needs.

Seeking Financial Support

Ensure you're claiming all entitled benefits, such as Attendance Allowance for those over State Pension age needing extra help at home due to illness or disability. Personal Independence Payment is available for those under State Pension age, while Carer’s Allowance may apply to caregivers.

At Ndima Healthcare, we're dedicated to providing not just care, but also support and guidance as you navigate your home care journey. We're here to ensure that you receive the compassionate care you deserve, tailored to your unique circumstances.
