It is obvious that live in care is miles better than residential care.
Why? because you are at home, you have one to one care and you aren’t in an institution.
But what does live in care cost?
Live in care costs tend to be pretty similar to a decent nursing or care home. We charge an average of about £1,150 a week, depending on your condition.
If the carer has to do a lot more work, she gets paid more. If the job is relatively easy, she gets paid less.
If you ring us up, we will be able to give you an accurate estimate over the phone, so you know where you are.
In a recent secret shopper survey of 22 live in care agencies, we find that Christies Care costs are almost exactly in the middle.
