In-home care costs

Understanding in-home care costs and your funding options

How it works

The different funding methods work in different ways; here's what you need to know at a glance. If you're not sure which option is best for you, contact us for advice.

Private funding

When you pay for your in-home care privately, you can choose how much support you receive and pay for it directly to your care provider. We charge an hourly rate for most in-home care services.

If you receive some government funding, you can also pay for additional in-home care service privately.

  • Use your funds to pay for your care
  • Get us much or as little support as you need
  • Our services are tailored to your lifestyle and preferences

Home equity release

A home equity release allows you to access some of the value stored in your home equity. You sell a portion of the future sale proceeds of your home and receive the funds up front. You can then use the funds to pay for your care or anything else you may need.

  • The only service we recommend is Homesafe Wealth Release
  • You can continue living in your home for as long as you like
  • You should get independent financial or legal advice before making a decision
