Cost of Live-In Care with Oxford Aunts Care
Value for money care in your own home
Our live-in care is highly tailored and individual to each client. The cost of this care is based on a detailed assessment of individual circumstances to ensure value for money. As a result of this we would be unable to provide exact costs until an assessment has taken place but as a guide our current price range is from £990.22 to £1,211.28 per week.
What is included?
Live-in care offers a great value alternative to a residential care home. Included in the price is specialist nurse-led one-on-one care 24 hours a day as well as companionship and the opportunity for the client to stay in the familiar surroundings of their own home.
Your carer will carry out your essential day-to-day care as well as household tasks, including cooking and assisting with social arrangements.
Our management fee is also included in this cost.
There may be some additional charges which the client would need to meet, and these need to be considered.
