What do I need to provide?
Our care worker will need a bedroom and is entitled to a two-hour break each day (or 14 hours a week). They will also need somewhere to keep their clothes, and access to a bathroom and a kitchen. While they are on call for 24 hours a day, minimal interruptions during the night are expected.
If this does not suit your needs, 24-hour care or a waking night option is available.
The cost of live-in dementia care
Live-in care is an affordable alternative to moving into a care home. The cost of live-in care depends on the level of care required and funding may be available. Our price is based on your needs, not where you live or who you are.
Live-in care: avoid selling your family home
Having to sell the family home to pay for care is understandably unpopular. However, if you are still living in your home it cannot be taken into account as an asset when calculating the cost of care.
Therefore, your home remains yours to bequeath or do with as you wish. This is particularly relevant for people with combined assets amounting to more than £23,250 (the point at which clients become responsible for the full cost of their care).
