How much does home care cost?

We know that you are looking for the highest quality of home care, and we understand that whilst you are looking at your options that you may also want to understand more about home care costs.

We always provide a full care assessment, in person at the home of the person we will be supporting to fully understand their needs and wishes. Following an assessment, we are in a better position to provide you with the actual cost of the care delivery.

An introduction to home care funding

When you find that you need care and support for yourself or a loved one it can be a worrying time. It’s the type of service that we don’t really think about until we need it.

Understanding what your options are for home care funding is important, so we’ve provided information here for your convenience. If you would prefer to have a chat with a member of our team then please get in touch as we’ll be more than happy to help at this difficult time.

Our staff are experienced and knowledgeable about every stage of the journey in home care and support, it may be of help to discuss your options.

Local Authority support with home care funding

The first port of call needs to be Adult Social Services, they can be contacted from your local council website. www.essex.gov.uk tel: 0345 743 0430.  Social Services will assess whether funding for social care will be granted, this is means tested.

You may already know that you or your loved one will not qualify for social care funding, however there are also non-means tested allowances that you could be entitled to anyway.

Paying for care privately

You might purchase care privately for the following reasons;

  • You do not qualify for the means-tested social care funding.
  • The Local Authority is not providing all the funding that you would like so you may wish to ‘top up’ your care with private payments.
  • You might wish to buy care to help a loved one in addition to the support they already receive or to enhance their quality of life.

We wanted to say a huge thank you for all the love, care and support of our dear mum DP. All the team at Premier Care were a huge part of mum’s life in her final years and it is thanks to you all that I had support from all of you while I was having treatment for breast cancer and mum received the wonderful care from all of you. This meant she was able to remain at home in her own environment where her friends and family could still be around he and not having to go into a nursing home and it helped me so much. All of you helped enormously to keep her cheerful and happy and she loved you all

To all the lovely carers at Premier Care.  Thank you so much for the lovely manner in which you care for dad.  Always with a smile, making sure dad had his dignity at all time and the support you showed C and I at this difficult time was amazing and will never be forgotten.

I am so pleased with the care Premier Care are giving my mum; all the carers have been kind and caring to mum and keep her comfortable.  They are so patient with her.  She was worried because you hear unpleasant stories about some care companies but we are so pleased with you and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you.

SM Benfleet

My carers are very flexible and I need this as I am pretty much bed bound. I feel very safe with them. I feel comfortable with communication between myself and Premier Care.
