Our Home Care Costs

At Day to Day Care, we pride ourselves on our commitment to transparency and this is reflected in the way we present our home care charges. We stand out from other home care providers by not only making our charge rates available as a downloadable pdf but also by displaying them prominently on the right-hand side of this page and other pages on our website for quick reference.

For those seeking a more detailed understanding, we have provided a comprehensive table below where you can input your specific requirements and calculate the weekly cost for your personalised home care service from Day to Day Care. Furthermore, you can download your selection and forward it to us so we can assess our current staff availability and provide you with an estimated service commencement date.

Please note that before we can begin providing any care we will need to conduct an initial assessment of your needs. This ensures that the care we deliver is tailored to meet your unique requirements and guarantees the highest quality service.

 

Care Visits

Care visits can be scheduled in fifteen-minute increments, with the shortest visits being ideal for checking in and ensuring everything is in order or monitoring medication adherence. We introduced these fifteen-minute visits in response to clients who expressed a preference for shorter visits when longer durations were not necessary. However, these shorter visits are not suitable for personal care, which requires a minimum of thirty minutes.

Home care visits can be arranged for the following durations:

  • 15 minutes (quarter-hour)
  • 30 minutes (half-hour)
  • 45 minutes (three-quarters of an hour)
  • 60 minutes (hour)
  • Additional time in increments of 15 minutes

Hour-long visits or longer are charged on a pro-rata basis, based on our hourly rate.

No Hidden Fees

Please note that our home care costs are higher during evenings (after 7 pm), weekends, and public holidays but there are no hidden charges and there is no VAT payable on home care services in the UK so the price you see is the price you pay.

We are always happy to provide you with a personalised cost illustration to help you with your planning or if you prefer you can use the table below to calculate your own costs.

A Flexible Approach

We understand that plans can change and we want to provide you with the utmost flexibility. So, if you need to cancel any of your visits, simply let us know 24 hours in advance, and we will not charge for them. Similarly, we do not require our clients to commit to a lengthy contract, allowing you to adjust your care plan as circumstances change.

 

Invoicing and Payment

We email invoices to our clients every Monday, Each invoice covers the prior week’s care service (Monday to Sunday) and they are due to be settled within seven days. We accept payment via direct debit to make the process as seamless as possible for our clients.

Financial Assistance

Financial assistance may be available to some clients. To learn more about these programs and your eligibility, please visit our page Help Paying For Home Care.

Home Care Cost Calculator

There is no such thing as a typical home care package because everyone’s care needs are unique. However, you can use the following table to calculate a weekly cost customised to your own requirements and based on our current rates (January 2023).  The calculated cost is the weekly cost you can expect to pay for the visits you have selected.  There are no hidden costs and visits cancelled more than 24 hours in advance are not charged for. Things to bear in mind:

  • There is no VAT chargeable on domiciliary care in the UK so the price you see is the price you pay.
  • 15-minute visits are not suitable for providing personal care. These are only suitable for “check-in” or to “prompt medication”.
  • The calculated cost is for a single Home Care Worker per visit. If “Double Handed” care is required the cost will be double.
  • The cost calculator does not factor in the cost of Public and Bank Holidays which usually carry a premium.
  • Evening visits are those starting after 7 pm. These are charged at a slightly higher rate than visits before 7 pm.
  • If you are viewing on your phone or a similar device the calculator works better in landscape mode.
