We are an award winning home care agency and pride ourselves on the professional, personal service our carers provide. We are here to help our clients maintain their independence whilst receiving care in the home they know and love.
We make home care easy for you. We find you a local carer, handle the payment, training and appraisals of your carer and arrange cover when they take a holiday. For more information on how Good Oaks can help you, please do get in touch with us today.
Home care is a service which allows the elderly, frail or disabled to continue living in their own home whilst receiving the care they need. Carers can either make regular visits to your home, or move in with you to provide 24 hour live-in care. Home carers have a wide variety of duties, depending on your needs, including helping you get in and out of bed, helping you to get washed and dressed, carrying out domestic tasks or just providing companionship and enabling you to have a social life.
Home care, or domiciliary care as it is also known, is an incredibly flexible service. Whether you need a carer for a few hours a week, several hours a day or all day every day on a short term or long term basis, your home care can be organised around your specific requirements.
If you need help with daily routines and don’t want to move into a care home, then home care is the service for you.
Can you get 24 hour care at home?
Yes, you can get 24 hour care at home, but you must be able to provide a spare room for your carer to live in. Having a live-in carer means you can get 24 hour a day support in your own home, during the day and night.
How much does in home care cost?
The cost of home care will vary depending on your specific needs. Daily care visits to carry out domestic duties will cost less than 24 hour a day, specialist live-in care. At Good Oaks, our live-in care services start at £990.00 per week for 24/7 care of a single adult and £1,100.00 per week for a couple and our visiting care costs start at £19.99.
You might qualify for local authority care funding or NHS Continuing Healthcare Funding (CHC) to help you pay for your home care services.
