Home care vs Care home - Bunbury Care Agency

Home Care – v – Care Home

There is much debate as to whether care in the home is more expensive than moving into a care home.

My philosophy has always been to provide the best possible home service to our clients at the most cost-effective price. I want you to stay living in your own home.

Residential Care – v – Live in Care

Whilst I do understand that some people may be happier in the environment of a residential home, it can cost an average of £960 per week for a single person and double for a couple. This may mean you have to sell your house and no longer keep all your belongings and pets. Instead you could have that extra pair of hands and one to one attention at all times, so you can continue living the way you have always done, in your own home. Nothing could be better than that, in my opinion!

Daily Care

Our daily carers also have a special role. They will give you a minimum of a full hour of their attention. You will always have the same people at the time you need them giving you and your family peace of mind and a service you can trust and rely upon.
