Most homecare is charged by the visit. 30 minutes is generally the minimum length of visit, and the length of the visit depends on what you need support with. For example, you might need slightly longer to help with your morning routines than you do to help you make a light lunch.
The care agencies’ fees are generally inclusive of all associated costs; staffing and payroll costs, mileage, PPE, and care management, such as assessments, reviews and spot-checks.
You’ll notice that shorter visits are relatively more expensive than longer visits, because there are fixed costs such as mileage and travel time that have to be reflected no matter the length of visit.
GoodOaks has a transparent pricing structure with no hidden costs, but some companies do charge extra for mileage, so it’s always worth asking.
