Why Choose Private Care?

Choosing the right type of care for oneself or for a loved one can be a difficult decision. The last thing any family would want is to feel that their loved one's care is impersonal or commodified. With private care, a significant measure of control is returned to the people who matter the most – the clients.

Our Consistent Carer Promise

At PrimeCarers, we believe in the power of familiarity. One of the biggest advantages of private care is the client's ability to choose their carer and retain the final say on who has the privilege of entering their home. With us, your preferred carer is consistent, eliminating the worry of dealing with different carers every week.


We also understand the financial constraints of getting good quality care. Our private carers offer both live-in and hourly care options at affordable rates, charging only a 12.5% fee for live-in care and a 15-20% fee for hourly care. Comparatively, agencies take a substantial 30-50% cut. Furthermore, you can better manage care for both your parents through our services for as low as £1,218 per week on average for couples.

Comfort in Your Own Home

Our private care services render a warm, comforting environment in one's own home, removing the emotional stress of having to adjust to a new environment. Home is not just a place—it's about enjoying freedom, comfort, and memories. We aim to keep those feelings alive for our clients through our private care services.

Perfect Match

At PrimeCarers, we work tirelessly to ensure each client-carer relationship is a lasting one. We take into account over 80 factors to make the best match, whilst ensuring compatibility, trust and the satisfaction of both parties.

Private Care Perfect for Couples

Our private carers also cater to couples who would prefer to remain in their home together. By hiring a private carer, couples can stay together and receive personalised care tailored to each spouse's needs. The emotional and psychological boost provided by this arrangement is priceless.

Experience Kensington and Chelsea

Another exclusive feature of private care is that our carers can accompany clients on outings. This is a stark contrast to agency carers, who generally adhere to a set care plan and are unwilling to engage in activities outside this list. Our carers, however, can take clients out to popular local attractions in Kensington and Chelsea.

These include the iconic Saatchi Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum, an abode of history and culture. The green expanses of Holland Park and Kensington Gardens are perfect for a relaxing wander or a picnic. And for those who enjoy retail therapy, the high-end boutiques on King's Road are a treat.

Private Care vs Agency Care

More Value, Less Cost

With private care, more of your money translates directly into care hours. As mentioned before, agencies can take a large cut of up to 50%, making private care more affordable. The added benefits of personalised care, consistency and comfort drive the value of private care to far exceed what's offered by agencies.

Flexibility of Choice

Another advantage of private care over agency care is the flexibility to choose one's carer. On the flip side, relying on an agency significantly restricts your options. It is not unheard of for agencies to swap out carers due to changing shifts or operational needs, disrupting continuity and possibly causing discomfort to your loved one.

Freedom Within The Care Plan

Private care stands out in the flexibility and customisation it allows for clients' care plans. While agencies are typically structured and rigid, PrimeCarers’ personalised approach makes room for spontaneity and the indulgence of hobbies or outings to local attractions, enriching the overall caregiving experience.

Reduced Staff Turnover

With private care, you can expect the continuity of the same carer providing services. However, agencies often deal with high staff turnover, resulting in frequent changes in care staff. This can be analienating and disruptive for clients who prefer familiarity and consistency in their care.


The advantages of private care in Kensington and Chelsea are apparent. With PrimeCarers, clients find a service that not only meets their needs and provides the best personalised care, but also respects their decisions, comfort, and familiarity.

Private care is about enabling an improved quality of life. With the benefits of consistency, affordability, and being comfortable in your own home, coupled with the perfect carer match and the ability to support couples, one can see why so many are making the switch from agency care to private care. Enjoy the glorious attractions of Kensington and Chelsea, and feel confident in knowing that with private care, you get more value, choice and freedom.

It's about enriching lives through compassionate, personalised care; right in the heart of one's home. This is the promise private care delivers; the promise that PrimeCarers stands by. Choose private care, choose PrimeCarers, and unlock the absolute best in care today. For more details, check our complete guide to private carers.
