Live-in Care: A Quick Recap

Live-in care refers to having a professionally trained carer living with the person requiring care in their home. Rather than moving into a care facility or nursing home, a person can remain in their own environment, maintaining their routines, independence, and privacy. To learn more about the specifics on live-in care, you might want to read our Complete Guide to Live-in Care.

Pricing Structures at PrimeCarers

At PrimeCarers, we've designed our live-in care service to be as transparent and straightforward as possible. We offer two rates: a basic rate and a complex rate. These prices serve as benchmarks within which the final cost for each individual is arrived at. While these quoted prices serve as a guide, it's worth noting the carers on our platform are self-employed, and as such, set their own rates.

Average Cost of Live-in Care in the Highlands

Currently, the specific average prices advertised for basic live-in care and complex live-in care on our platform are £0.00. These are the averages of the advertised rates for carers based in the Highlands. And while these sums provide a baseline understanding, the actual cost might be higher or potentially lower depending on a variety of factors.

Factors that Affect Live-in Care Costs

Live-in care costs are impacted by a number of factors including:

  1. Frequency of night-time care: If your loved one has a condition that requires frequent waking and attention during the night, the carer's workload increases and this will reflect in the cost.

  2. Caring for a couple: Providing care for two people requires more work which increases the cost. You can understand more about couple's care in our resource Can Live-In Carers Look After Couples?.

  3. Level of nursing care required: If intensive nursing care is needed, this requires a carer with a specific skill set and training, which increases the overall cost.

  4. Unique skills or expertise needed: If a carer with a unique skill set is needed, this can also increase the cost of care.
