Understanding Home Care Costs 

We understand that navigating home care costs can feel overwhelming. Organising care for yourself or a loved one can be stressful, which is why we strive to simplify the process as much as possible at Beehive Care & Training.

Home Care Costs at Beehive

The cost of home care varies depending on individual needs. Visiting care is charged at an hourly rate, while live-in care, also known as "24-hour care," is quoted either on a daily rate for short-term respite or a weekly rate for ongoing care. During our consultations, we'll discuss the level of care that suits you best and ensure the cost is financially sustainable for you and your family.

Why Choose Beehive Care 

Transparent Pricing

We're upfront about our home care costs. You'll only pay what's agreed upon in your care plan, with no hidden fees or long notice periods.

Not a Care Agency

Unlike traditional care agencies, we're a private care provider, eliminating agency fees or retainers.

Accept Direct Payments

If you're receiving funding through social services and opt for direct payments, we can accept top-ups to these payments.

Visiting Care Costs

Our flexible visiting care services start from £26.00 per hour, offering bespoke support tailored to your unique requirements.

Tailored Support: Whether you need care for 30 minutes per week or regular daily calls, our visiting care provides the flexibility you need.

Live-in Care Costs

For a comprehensive care package, our ongoing live-in care prices start from £1,480 per week for one person and £1,690 per week for a couple. With personalised care, your dedicated live-in carer will provide one-to-one support tailored to your exact requirements, ensuring peace of mind and continuity of support.

Financial Support

In England, if your assets exceed £23,250, your local authority may consider you able to pay for your care yourself. However, the value of your property is not taken into account for integrated care within your own home.

  • Qualifying for Care Funding: Determining eligibility for care funding can be complex. It's essential to understand the distinction between healthcare funding and social care funding and seek advice from medical or legal professionals if uncertain.
  • Financial Assessment: Your local authority will review your ability to pay for care based on your income and assets. They will inform you whether you're entitled to have all, some, or none of your care paid for, with reassessments conducted annually.
  • Self-Funding and Benefits: The majority of our families self-fund their care, and we can work with you to develop a care plan and payment plan that suits your needs. Additionally, you may be eligible for benefits to help cover your care costs, depending on your personal situation.
