THE COST RATE OF A PRIVATE TEMPORARY CARER

When thinking of the question ‘how much does a temporary carer cost?’, it is highly important to also look at alternative options to an assisted living facility, which can be very expensive depending on which home. The very common query people when searching for a private temporary carer for the home is regarding how they will cost. Fortunately, in most cases, hiring a private temporary carer is less expensive than going into an assisted living facility. However, it is important to take into consideration that the rate could differ and depends on the type of care and level of support you will need, as well as factors such as your geographical location.

The price of temporary care will depend on the type of care you need, whether in personal care, companionship, live-in care or respite care. At Guardian Carers, on average, many of the private temporary caregivers may cost £12-15 an hour. Our live-in care package can range from £100 - 140 per day, but this could depend on the complexity of the role. We also provide a wide range of overnight private temporary carers, which can cost between £15 - £20 per hour.

If you or a loved one are medically able to stay home, a private temporary carer can provide you with a middle ground between care in the home and independence. Budgeting and financing for private care can be difficult, but Guardian Carers can provide you with any advice you need and search for the private temporary carer that fits your financial requirements.

Studies indicate that residential care can cost up to £30,000 per year. The cost of in-home care for elderly clients is usually charged at an hourly or day rate, depending on if it is live-in or live-out, which allows for more flexible care which can be a lot more cost effective, depending on the needs of the client. If the client requires more hands-on, 24-hour care then discounts may be available but, in many cases, it is widely accepted that in home care is the cheaper option of the two even when demands are high.
