The Cost of Home Care

The cost of home care varies depending on the type of care you need, and how often you need it. We believe in providing excellent quality care at home which is why we aim to make our home care costs as transparent and simple as possible.

The best way to get a quote for home care costs is to contact your local Alina Homecare team. They will start by meeting you at home to chat through your requirements and preferences before creating a tailored Care Plan.

We know that paying for care can often feel complicated. That’s why our care plans are designed to suit your personal needs and wishes and budget. Even once you choose our service, we keep this under review so that it continues to work for you and your lifestyle.

We adapt our home care visits to suit your requirements, starting from short care visits up to 24-hour live-in care. If you need more complex care, you will need two carers per visit and we can provide a cost for this too.

At Alina Homecare, we work with you to make sure the cost of home care remains achievable. Our aim is to make life easier.

What is the hourly cost of home care?
The hourly cost of home care will vary according to the kind of care you are looking for.

We start by meeting you at home to chat through your situation before putting together a Care Plan. This plan includes everything from the type of care you need, how often you need it, and also our care costs, including a breakdown of our hourly cost of care at home.

Once you start receiving our great care, we continue to review it to ensure that it works for you for as long as you choose to use our services.

We know life is constantly changing so we offer flexibility at all times. We can visit clients once or several times a day. Whether you want a short visit or something longer, we support you to make life easier.

Unlike some care agencies, our fees also include your carers’ time, including the cost of travelling to and from your home, so there are no hidden extra care costs.

Quick Questions?

How much does in-home care cost per hour?

Many of our home care services are charged on an hourly basis; this is to ensure that our Care Plans remain fully flexible and suited to your individual needs. If care is required through the night or for 24 hours, your care can be charged at a fixed rate. To receive further information about the cost of home care in your area, please contact your local Alina Homecare team.

Is home care cheaper than a care home?

According to Which?, the average cost of receiving care in a care home per week in the UK is between £681-£979.1 Depending on the type of care you need, the cost of home care can be more affordable than this. Of course, care homes offer a different type of service than having carers in your own home.

Each person’s needs are different, and so it is important you make the right decision for yourself about the level of support you require. For example, home care is an ideal option if you want to stay independent at home, want some company, or need someone to look after your elderly parent. Sometimes, however, a care home is necessary if a higher level of specialist and nursing support is needed.

How much do carers cost?

For many people, the cost of a stay at home carer is one of the main factors in their decision-making process. Our carers can provide a wide variety of support from respite care to companion care through to 24-hour live-in care. This means that some of our clients only pay for an hour of care once a week whereas others need daily support. As a result, we price our home care fees on a case-by-case basis. To chat about your care requirements and to receive a fully transparent quote, simply contact your local Alina Homecare team today.

How much does 24/7 hour care at home cost?

Full-time live-in care is charged at a fixed rate as opposed to an hourly cost to ensure you receive the best value for our 24/7 quality care and support. To get a quote for 24/7 care at home, simply chat with your local Alina Homecare team.

Will the cost of care vary by location?

Just like the cost of a care home, the cost of home care varies according to the care you need, and the company providing it. We aim to be fully transparent about all our care at home costs. To discover a personalised care plan for you please contact your local Alina Homecare team.
