Costs for Live-in Care

You are here

Fully managed Live-in Care

Most people would rather be cared for at home than move into a care home or other institution and there are various financing options and state funding schemes which can help people achieve this.

LOW DEPENDENCY CARE - costs from £695 per week

Companionship live-in care ranging from no personal care requirements to those who need assistance with some smaller aspects of personal care and day to day living.

MEDIUM DEPENDENCY CARE - from £875 per week

Personal care ranging from those needing slightly more help such as catheter care to those who may have a specific healthcare need such as Parkinson’s, reduced mobility, dementia.

HIGH DEPENDENCY CARE - costs from £975 per week

High levels of personal care with more severe stages of neurological disorders and/or physical incapacity. People may require hoisting or may display some challenging behaviours.

CARE FOR COUPLES - costs from £1050 per week

Our friendly live-in carers can support couples in their own homes removing the need for partners to be separated, enabling them to remain together in their home and to continue to enjoy their daily lives whilst receiving the level of care they need.

RESPITE CARE - costs from £175 per day*

Respite care from Agincare is a short term live-in care solution enabling a carer, who may be a family member, to take a break. We can also provide cover for illness and emergencies. Care starts from £175 per day (single persons), minimum term 10 days*. We do also provide care for couples..

Specialist Care

Agincare’s excellent reputation for providing high quality and person-centred services is achieved through not having a ‘one size fits all’ approach to our service provision. Our ethos is to provide a holistic service, which enables you to maintain full control and choice with your care so it fits around your chosen lifestyle and preferences.

Care Assessment

With Agincare, a care needs assessment is a free, no obligation process which is designed to assess the holistic needs of the service user. The assessment can be conducted within 24 hours of receiving the request and will be arranged at a time/place convenient to the client and/or service user.

A qualified assessor will arrive to conduct the assessment which will last approximately 1.5 hours. The assessment will then be used as the foundation to build the bespoke, person-centred service you require. In order to progress any care enquiry, we suggest a care needs assessment is arranged as it allows us to provide all the facts and figures required for you to make an informed decision.

Live-in Care Comparison to Care Homes

Live-in care is the practical and affordable alternative to a residential care home. This section offers a simple guide to the key differences between the two types of care, ultimately it is down to the individual and the family to decide what is the best option. Agincare can provide care for a wide range of needs (see conditions cared for) but it does not provide nursing care.

*Typical cost of an Agincare Care Home on the South of England. **Where eligible - please see web site funding page for further information With the flexibility of live-in care, the family can visit on their own schedule and can have more hands on involvement if they choose to. A bespoke care plan, delivered on a one-to-one basis, is a level of personal care that care homes cannot compete with. Whilst the costs of live-in care and care homes is comparable, the level of personalised care certainly isn’t.

Live-in Care Case Studies

We could not believe that there was a service that could provide support so quickly. We were so surprised when we were told about it. We usually have to fight to get support, but this was so easy. She (the support worker) has been fantastic and made such a difficult time easier. She is such a hard worker and my Mother (Mrs Hammond) told me that she is wonderful. If she says that, it is high praise indeed.

Mrs H lives at home. She is a poorly lady with long-term health needs and mild confusion and requires assistance in all aspects of daily living. Her primary carer was her husband. Mrs H was also supported by the Portsmouth reablement team attached to the hospital to enable her as far as possible.
