Home Care Cost

Cost of hourly care and live-in care

When seeking to understand the cost of care you will need to consider the weekly fees for the various options available to you. This could be hourly care at home or live-in care at home. When comparing home care costs it is important to consider whether the care provider charges for an assessment of care needs before the service commences. You should also seek to understand how the care provider operates and if they are capable of supporting the needs of a private individual/family – some organisations provide care under large-scale contracts with local authorities and it can be extremely difficult to manage this type of service alongside working with private families.


We provide services for either hourly care or live-in care. To obtain a quote for our services please contact our local care management team on 0115 974 3830, or email info@bwhcare.com today will be able to answer any questions you may have.


Live-in care cost of care

​ Our live-in care service is generally purchased on a weekly basis. Costs do vary as they depend on the needs of the individual or couple being supported. However, it can generally be assumed that live-in care will cost the equivalent of a high-quality care home. Live-in care can be particularly attractive for couples as weekly fees are not charged per client like they are in a care home.
