Should occasional care be required in the night, during a live-in care assignment, then a ‘waking fee’ can be charged. We recommend that this should cover a period of 8 hours, such as 11pm – 7am (however, flexibility should be shown for early or late risers). This charge is set at £11 for a single call and raises to a maximum of £22 should a number of calls occur. We are mindful of the impact that a waking service will have on our Carers’ daytime support. Therefore, should multiple waking episodes occur, we recommend additional time off during the day, or an additional night Carer. Any instance of waking, whether or not a fee is incurred, should be reported to us – so we can maintain update assignment records and discuss ongoing care requirements.

Bank holidays – during bank holidays, Carer fees are two times the standard rate. Extra fees will be charged over the Christmas and New Year period too.
Client meals – Carers are there to prepare meals for the Client(s) they are looking after; should additional family members, or guests, wish to have food prepared then this needs to be agreed in advance.
Work & rest time – though live-in care is unmeasured work, daily average hours should be a maximum of 10 hours care, plus a 2 hour break at a time suitable to the Client. Should care be required during this period additional support should be arranged.
Visiting travel allowance – this should always be agreed in advance of the assignment. The Carer will charge a set fee of £4 per visit to cover their travel expenses; this will be added to their invoice.
