How Do I Pay?
You may have concerns about the costs involved in getting care and support at home. But if you have been assessed as needing care, you will also be assessed to see how much you can afford to pay towards the cost of services, while still having enough money to live on.
The amount that social services departments pay towards care on your behalf varies depending on your HSE, although there are minimum requirements. When you have an assessment, your needs will be judged to see whether you’re eligible for services under the national eligibility criteria.
If you’re found to have eligible needs the HSE has a duty to meet those needs but can charge for services.
The cost of our service is priced by the half hour, hour, day or priced by the week . Our Care Manager can let you know the exact price you will be expected to pay once the support plan has been developed at your home.
Some people require more intense care intervention than others, therefore prices are comparative to the level of support you require. You may be able to claim some level of financial assistance from the HSE and this will also be discussed with our Care Manager during the visit. We will be able to give you information and assist in helping you enquire into whether you are entitled to financial assistance.
Whilst the cost of live-in care and care homes is comparable, the level of personalised care certainly isn’t. We know that value for money and transparent pricing are very important to our customers.
My Homecare Angels employ an assessment manager who will determine your individual care requirements, giving you the complete breakdown of the cost of your care service once your initial appraisal is complete.
Our live-in care services are discounted heavily against the standard hourly charged for other home care services, such that it becomes a genuinely affordable alternative to moving to a residential home.
Ultimately, the real value of our live-in service is that it enables you or your loved one to continue living independently at home, in familiar and comfortable surroundings.
