It's Cost Effective

Our weekly cost start from £1000, dependent on your level of need; this works out cheaper than most good care homes. The cost saving is greater when a couple living together both need support, as one live-in carer can be shared, compared to paying for two individual care home fees. If you already receive hourly care, there is a cost saving after 7.5 hours of hourly support due to a reduced rate, better still the benefits are always greater by having a care and support assistant available.
