The Benefits of Private Care


With PrimeCarers, clients get to choose their private carer and have the final say on who comes into their homes.[^1^] This results in consistent care, which is crucial in providing a feeling of security and comfort for clients. The familiarity of a constant face and routine also aids in building trust between the carer and client.


Cost is often a decisive factor when choosing care options. With PrimeCarers, clients are charged a fee of 12.5% for live-in care and 15-20% for hourly care. This is a more affordable choice when matched against agency care that generally takes a 30-50% cut of the fee clients pay.[^2^]

Comfort at Home

The home is a sanctuary for many; a place of familiarity and comfort. With PrimeCarers, clients can stay in the comfort of their homes while receiving the care they need. Comparative to institutionalised care like nursing homes, private care avoids the stress of having to adjust to a new environment.

Perfect Matching

PrimeCarers offers a service where they match clients with carers based on over 80 factors. This aids in developing a positive rapport between carer and client, leading to a relationship that goes beyond the care plan.

Couples Care

PrimeCarers positions itself as a platform that caters to not just individual clients but also couples who wish to continue living together at home. For an average cost of £1,218/week, both parents can receive the support and care they need simultaneously.

Private Care Versus Agency Care

Agency Fee Structure

With agency care, agencies generally take a 30-50% cut of the fee you pay. This hefty commission ends up making the services more expensive and gradually becomes an issue for long-term care situations.

Carer Options

Agency based care generally offers limited options for the choice of carers. This lack of choice becomes problematic when clients are unable to find a carer who meets their unique care requirements. With PrimeCarers, clients have the ultimate control in determining which carer enters their home.

Overly Structured Agency Care

Agency care tends to follow a rigid structure and schedule, which often leaves no room for flexibility or personal requests. Carers from agencies are sometimes unwilling to engage in activities that are not explicitly stated on the care plan, which may make it difficult for clients to receive personalised care.

Experiences with Haringey's Local Attractions

An often-overlooked advantage of private care is the ability for carers to accompany clients to local attractions and outings. This not only enhances the quality of life but also effectively stimulates the mind and elevates mood. Haringey is abundant with attractions for PrimeCarers clients to visit.

Priory Park

Priory Park's green open spaces and the relaxing atmosphere make it an ideal location for a leisurely stroll or a relaxed outdoor picnic on a fine day.

Alexandra Palace

The grandeur of Alexandra Palace, coupled with its vast 196-acre park, makes it a joy for an outdoors trip. It can be an exhilarating experience appreciating the panoramic view of London from the palace.
