How much does a Carer in Kensington cost?

There is no place like home and Guardian Carers enables you to continue living the life you love in the home you love.

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.
