Cost of Home Care
Clear pricing for home and overnight care
Determining the best way to care for yourself or someone close to you can be stressful, especially when the need for care is first recognised. Living at Home sets clear pricing for home and overnight care.
Although home care solutions can be expensive, this does not apply to all.
Unlike other home care providers, Living at Home guarantees there are no hidden costs of home care.
People trust us to provide high-quality, affordable home care because we are regulated by the Care Inspectorate for Wales and invest much time and money in training our regulated care professionals
Our home care costs are tailored to your specific needs.
Everyone is unique, which is why we take the time to learn about your specific needs.
It’s up to you how often you receive care and support at home.
We offer a range of care options, from 20-minute medication calls to 30-minute visits once a week or several times a day, and from overnight support to live-in care.
Our home care service is flexible, so it’s easy to adapt how much help and support you receive as your situation changes.
The average cost of a nursing home or care setting
A well-run residential facility may be able to provide exceptional care and support, but residential care is expensive.
The cost of care at a nursing home requires careful consideration, especially as for many people who move into residential care, it is often an irrevocable step.
Average costs of home care services
Home care is a service that you might choose to pay for.
You determine the level of care and support you receive, for as long as you need it.
Rather than paying a care home to fund support shared among many, you pay for an exclusive one-on-one care and support service.
When you consider the average cost of nursing home care, the cost of home care appears a better and more economical alternative for you or your loved one.
In our experience, people prefer to stay in their own homes for as long as possible, in the familiar settings they know and love – we can help them do so with our unique approach to care and support.
Many people who previously felt that residential care was their only option now realise that Living at Home’s exceptional care and support truly enhances the lives of the clients and is within affordable reach.

Acceptance of social care fundsIf you receive social care financial support for home care services from Swansea Council or Neath Port Talbot Council and have a personal budget or have chosen direct payments, you can use these as supplementary payments for your home care. If you choose this option, you have the freedom to select your care provider rather than have it chosen by your local council. You can arrange for this care and pay for it yourself, supplementing your payments if necessary.
