Live-in Care Costs and Funding

Live-in care offers excellent value for a carer who lives with your loved one and is dedicated entirely to their care. Most importantly you pay for the care you receive and not hotel-type services such as accommodation, food, water, and amenities or the shared care services of a multi-occupancy nursing home.

Live-in care costs include 24-hour support

You have a dedicated one-to-one carer who will flexibly and compassionately support your loved one. Your live-in carer is there for your loved one and to attend when they require help not when they fit into their shift. There is no waiting for the nurses to come around in the morning. Your loved one can have their breakfast or assistance to get up and dressed when they want it.

Live-in care provides the most cost-efficient tailored care

If you want access to a bespoke care solution, live-in care is easily the most cost-efficient way. It is 100% focused on the needs of your loved one allowing them to continue to live at home safely. Your loved one maintains their lifestyle with their partner or pets, as well as continuing social activities and daily routines.

The cost of live-in care is based on the client’s needs. Of course, you will be wondering how much does in home care cost. It is an important factor in your care choice.

Currently, care funding is means-tested in the UK at a level of £23,250. In theory, if you have assets over £23,250 you will need to meet your own care costs. If you are especially unwell the NHS may meet a sizable percentage of your care costs, known as continuing healthcare.

Your home will not be included in the means test if you receive care and support at home. If you move into a care home on a short-term or temporary basis, or permanently and your partner still lives there or in certain circumstances a relative, your home will also not be included.

There are state benefits available that are non-means tested and tax-free. If you are under 65 and looking for help to fund live-in care you may be eligible for The Personal Independence Payment (PIP) depending on your level of need. If you are aged over 65 you may be eligible for Attendance Allowance. They are paid at a lower or higher rate depending on your needs.
