Kensington Care

Why choose home care in Kensington?

With home care in Kensington, you have control as to how your day is spent, what to do and when to do it and what meals are made. Here at Guardian Carers all our carers will be carefully handpicked to tailor your exact needs. Your carer will know your routine and interests to be able to arrange activities you enjoy and know the way you like your household to be run. We can offer carers that are available to assist you from a couple of hours a day or week from helping with accompanying you to events or exchanging stories over a cup of tea. To carers that can be full time live in care to assist with everything from housekeeping to personal care. At Guardian Carers we ensure all our carers have a minimum of 3 years experience so they are always be prepared for an emergency situation, you will always know that you are safe and help is available. Our Kensington carers are also experienced and qualified to help those with dementia to simply being a companion.

How much does a Carer in Kensington cost?

The types of home care in Kensington vary in cost quite significantly, it is important to know all the facts before you decide upon the best type of care for yourself or your loved one as it involves financial planning. The first steps to planning financial costs are verifying if your loved one is eligible for support. For individuals under the age of 65, it is a good idea to apply for support from the NHS. There are also many other ways to see if you or your loved one qualifies for benefits support.

Live In Care in Kensington tends to be the most expensive option for home care in Kensington as it allows the care recipient to remain in their own home but receive round the clock, 24 hour care, 7 days a week. It is much more affordable in comparison to the cost of a care home. Live In care is different to the other types of care in Kensington as it is billed by the day or week. Normally a rota of individuals will undertake the home care, covering an agreed schedule. Live In care offers people a better standard of living and greater independence than care home provider.

Live Out Care is similar to Live In Care as, again, it allows the care recipient to remain in the home they love. However Live Out care is not 24 hour care but instead adapted to the specific needs of the individual. Live Out care is billed by the hour so it is easier to keep track of how much it is costing. This can come in the form of either Full Time, Part Time or Respite care. Respite care, typically provides relief for their usual family carer for example for a weekend or a few days or if you have had an operation and need assistance recovering. Respite care rates have the added bonus for being a cheaper option for couples as at a care home they would need to pay for two places.

Ensuring your security for your peace of mind

Ensuring you feel safe and secure within your own home is a core aspect of elderly home care.
