How much do private carers cost?

How much do private carers cost? Here at PrimeCarers we offer three different types of care, hourly care, shift care and live-in care. Carers on our platform set their own prices so the below prices are averages across our platform and may be higher or lower based on the level of care required and geographical location.

Hourly Care

From £14/hr

For care visits of under 6 hours we operate an hourly rate.

Shift Care

From £12/hr

For shifts of 6 or more hours most of our carers offer a reduced rate.

Live-in Care

From £770/week

24 hour live-in care can be most cost effective and is priced per day.
