How Much Does It Cost?

Usually hourly care is far more affordable than care home costs. This is because the care provided is only paid for when it’s required. Often negating the need for equity release, hourly home care can be an affordable but still effective alternative to care home.

Every care plan is bespoke to the client's unique requirements and preferences. Please contact us to arrange a free care consultation.

Hourly Home Care For The Elderly

A common request for hourly social care help is for older people. We have a specialist team of carers and support workers dedicated to different types of care for at home.

Can You Get 24 Hour Care At Home?

Care provided round the clock is called live-in care. Often a popular alternative to moving your loved ones into a care home. There are many benefits to 24 hour live in care and additional community social care support is available through local authorities.

What is hourly home care?

Hourly home care enables people to retain their independence in the comfort of their own home with the peace of mind of one-to-one care from a professional carer as and when they require it.

Typically, the service involves visits from one carer, though we also support individuals who require two or more carers on each visit. Our visits start from 1 hour upwards and are arranged at times which suit the client. We also provide longer visits, as well as sleepovers and waking nights.

Professional, highly trained carers provide a wide variety of tasks, personalised to the needs of the client. These include personal care, companionship, home help, medication management, as well as and specialist medical care for those with complex needs such as Dementia. Hourly home carers often become trusted friends to their clients, enabling them to continue to live happily at home.

We understand that your hourly home care needs may change over time and so we’re here to support you every step of the way.

How much does hourly home care cost?

Hourly home care is available from 1 hour upwards and can also include sleepovers and waking nights. Our service is fully flexible meaning it can be easily increased or decreased as needs change.

Our hourly home care starts from £24.50 per hour. This is an all-inclusive cost – we do not charge an additional call out / travel fee like many other companies.  The only additional cost is for travel mileage undertaken on behalf of the client based on a fixed charge per mile.

Hourly home care is usually a much more economical alternative to a care home as you pay for the hours of care you need, which may only be a few hours a day.

What does an hourly home carer do?

Hourly home carers carry out a wide variety of tasks. These include assistance with morning get up and bedtime, medication management, meal preparation, personal care and companionship. They may also accompany clients on visits out of the house. Hourly home carers have specialist training to support those with complex needs such as Dementia, Stroke Care, Parkinson’s, MND, MS and end of life care.  

Home carers form an important part of a client’s daily routine to enable them to maintain their quality of life at home.

What is the difference between hourly home care and live-in care?

Hourly home care and live-in care both include care provided in an individual’s home. With hourly home care the carer visits the client for a period of time on the agreed-upon days and with live in care the carer lives with the person round the clock.

Our hourly home care service starts from minimum of 1 hour calls as we do not believe a high-quality service can be provided in less time. Our service is available at all times of the day, with the most popular times being in the morning and evening to support with get up and go to bed and meals.

What is the difference between live in care and domiciliary care?

Both live in care and domiciliary care include care provided in a person’s home. However, with live in care the carer lives with the person round the clock, 24/7, whereas with domiciliary care the carer visits the client for a period of time on the agreed-upon days.

The Care Collection’s domiciliary care service starts from 1 hour calls – we do not believe a high quality service can be provided in less time. Our domiciliary care service is available at all times of the day, with the most popular times being around mealtimes and at bedtime.

Who is hourly home care for?

Hourly home care is common among elderly people who prefer to stay in the comfort of their own homes rather than moving into a care home. It is also used by younger adults with complex medical conditions such as Learning Disabilities, Acquired Brain Injuries, Acquired Spinal Injuries and Motor Neurones Disease.

The service enables people to continue to enjoy to live life the way they want. They can retain control over daily routines, have friends and family visit whenever they wish, remain at home with their partner and keep their pets.

Hourly home care also provides security and peace of mind as it reduces the risk of incidents occurring and families having to make ‘reactive’ unplanned decisions regarding care.

What our Clients say

Very good response to our family requirements. Professional, very understanding and caring. Being able to have a bespoke service was ideal for our situation and it helped the family through a very difficult time. The staff were extremely efficient and managed the care for both parents, maintaining their dignity and well-being. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Care Collection to anyone who requires bespoke care.
