Specialist live-in care for young and old alike


We understand that you may have concerns about the cost of live-in care, which is why our team can talk you through the potential costs of a live-in carer, and what local authority funding options or continuing health care funding may be available to you.

At Agincare we will be transparent about the cost of live-in care. Our concern is getting you the support you require and we aim to do that by openly discussing your funding options. We aim to give you the highest standard of live-in care, in a cost-effective way that will help you manage the cost of 24 hour care at home as best you can.

Funding Your Live-in care

Most people would rather be cared for at home than move into a care home or other institution and there are various financing options and state funding schemes which can help people achieve this.

This page summarises how Live In Care is often financed. Agincare Live In Care services is not authorised to provide investment or other financial advice and nothing in this brochure should be construed as such. We recommend you obtain independent financial advice from an adviser registered with the Financial Services Authority.

Do I qualify for funding?

You may qualify for some level of funding from your local authority or the NHS. If your assets, including your property, are less than the lower limit of £14,250 in England, then the State will pay for 100% of your care. Although, you may be expected to make a contribution if you receive certain benefits or any income.

Direct payments

Direct payments are a great way for you to take back control of your care. After an assessment by the Local Authority, and the creation of a care plan, you or someone you trust can be awarded control over the money the government would have used to provide your care. This money can then be used to select the right form of care for you, for instance, live-in care. To find out more visit our dedicated direct payments page and see if you are eligible.
