Private Funding

Understanding in home care costs when you pay privately

How it works

When you pay for your in home care privately, we charge an hourly rate for most of our services. We customise our care to your individual situation, so you only pay for as much or as little care as you want, and you're never locked into a contract.

In many cases, our clients receive some government funding as well paying for care privately. This lets you 'top up' your government funded care for a bit of extra support and comfort when you need it.

We charge the same hourly rates for government funded and privately funded care, so it's easy to manage if you need a bit of both. You may be eligible for government funding if you don't currently receive any, get in touch with us and we can help you find out.
