Why choose Patricia White's?
How much does live-in care cost?
There is lots to consider when it comes to live-in care, including cost. Find out all about our live-in care pricing and talk to a member of our friendly team to find a care option that works for you.
As an introductory agency we interview any potential carers and carry out the relevant checks such as DBS, right to work in the UK and professional references. We also ensure they have completed any training that is required and that this is kept up to date. The carers then work on a self-employed basis.
As an introductory agency we do not direct the care, giving the client the freedom to direct care as they wish.
Should occasional care be required in the night, during a live-in care assignment, then a ‘waking fee’ will be charged by the Carer. 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.
If you’d like to talk to our support team in complete confidence and without obligation – just call. We’ll do everything we can to help.
Our London visiting carers are also able to provide specific overnight care. We offer two different types of night care, both 12 hours long. If the client is up most of the night a carer can do a full awake night for the 12 hours or if they are only needed a couple of times during the night they we also offer a sleeper duty. During a sleeper duty the carer would need to be provided with a bedroom to sleep in and can be called on by the client up to 3 times during the night.
A live in carer would need to have their own bedroom with space to store their belongings. The carers would also need to be provided with food, often they will eat the same food as the client and will them at mealtimes, unless the client prefers to eat alone.
Live in carers can stay anywhere from 4 days to 8 weeks at a time, or sometimes longer, depending on the situation. This is to provide as much continuity to the client as possible as we understand that change can be stressful.
Many of our carers hold a drivers licence and would be able to drive the clients’ car if the appropriate car insurance is arranged. Our carers typically do not have their own cars. Feel free to contact our friendly team however to discuss options as we will always endeavour to find the perfect solution for your care needs.
We operate a 24 hours on call service. If there is an emergency outside of regular office hours (9am – 5:30pm Monday to Friday) then you can call the office number and you will be provided with an emergency number to contact. This will be answered by one of office team who will be happy to help in any way they can.
Our carers are happy to travel anywhere in the UK. Depending on their visa status many of them are also happy to travel outside of the UK to accompany clients on trips if this is needed.
