IntroductionWe understand the difficulties associated with reading and understanding some tariffs for 24-hour Live-in care. This, as well as the anguish caused when hidden charges appear on invoices, greatly increasing what appeared to be reasonable charges, and even jeopardises your finances. Our desire is to be as open and transparent as possible about our Live-in care. We will gladly explain any aspect of our services, and welcome your comments or suggestions for improvement. Charges for Live-In Care Our rates are often £100+ less than other providers and are fully inclusive. No hidden charges for travel, assessments, paying carers or reviews. This will be agreed and the costs confirmed following the assessment and the identified care needs. You can rest assured there are no extra charges other than bank holidays - which are charged at double rate. We offer a large discount on this charge if you pay by Standing Order as this saves us time and administration costs.
