Frequently asked questions
Is there an alternative to care homes?
There’s a wide choice of care homes available, some of which provide a stimulating program of events to entertain their residents. But no matter how good the food, or how dedicated the staff in a care home, the majority of older people would much prefer to remain in the familiar surroundings of their own homes.
Employing a live-in care worker allows your loved one to retain their sense of independence. Unlike in the majority of residential care homes, a live-in carer means that your loved one can keep their pets, stay with their spouse and stick to the familiar and comforting routines that they have built up over many years.
With no need to downsize a lifetime’s worth of treasured possessions, moving a live-in carer into your loved one’s home couldn’t be easier, and it will allow them to continue enjoying their current lifestyle, while being supported at every turn.
If you would like to know more, please contact one of our care specialists here.
Are care homes expensive?
Care home fees vary widely according to the individual needs of your loved one and other factors such as the location of the home. Care homes with nursing are generally more expensive than homes that only provide social care because of the increased cost of employing trained nurses, and specialist dementia homes also charge higher rates.
The cost of live-in care is often less expensive than care homes, sometimes saving as much as 30% compared to the cost of residential care. If you are looking for care for an elderly couple, live-in care is very much less expensive and has the added benefit of allowing them to stay together in their own home rather than being parted, as they may be in a care home.

How can I fund care for my loved one?
Planning for the long-term elderly care needs of a loved one is complex, so it pays to consider the matter as far in advance as possible. A local authority assessment is free of charge and available to anyone on request, and this could identify local sources of funding, depending upon your loved one’s financial circumstances.
NHS funding may be applicable if your loved one suffers from a long-term health condition, and grants and benefits may be available. If your loved one must pay for their own care, it’s best to seek professional advice from a financial advisor with CF8 or CeLTCI accreditations.
We have produced a range of guides covering the costs of care and how to fund it, and our advisors are on hand seven days a week to talk you through your options and point you in the right direction,
