The Advantages of Private Care

Private care offers an array of advantages that provides a personalised approach to supporting health and well-being. The PrimeCarers platform exists to match clients with the ideal private carers, taking into account a whopping 80 different factors to ensure the best personalised care is provided.

Consistent Carer

One of the unique aspects of private care is that it allows you to have your choice of carer. You always get the final say on who will come into your home and provide care. With PrimeCarers, you can be rest assured knowing that the carer you choose will be the one you see every time.

Cost and Time Effective

Private care offers an affordable solution for those seeking care in their own home. The live-in care arrangement provided by PrimeCarers just requires a 12.5% fee. Alternatively, hourly care requires only between a 15-20% fee. This is significantly less than the norm where agencies generally take a 30-50% cut of the fee you pay.

Comfort at Home

Private care allows you to receive quality care in the comfort of your own home, allowing you to retain familiar settings, surroundings and routines. This is especially beneficial for dementia patients as familiar surroundings can lessen confusion and anxiety.

The Perfect Match

With PrimeCarers, we ensure a perfect match by considering over 80 factors. These include dietary requirements, caring experience, specific training, languages spoken, availability, location and more. The priority is to create a harmonious relationship between carer and recipient, promoting well-being and independence.

Ideal for Couples

Private care is also perfect for couples. With PrimeCarers' special package for couples, both of your parents can be supported at home for just £1,218/week on average. This can ensure that couples who have spent their lifetime together can also spend their sunset years in each other's company.

Exploring Northamptonshire

Not only does private care via PrimeCarers provide necessary assistance, but carers can also accompany you to local attractions in Northamptonshire. This offers a great opportunity to enjoy time outside, to socialise and to explore on those days when you are feeling up to it. Situated in the East Midlands, the county of Northamptonshire boasts an array of attractions that appeal to the young at heart. These include the delightful gardens of Castle Ashby, the heritage railway line at Nene Valley Railway, and Pitsford Reservoir, with an easy-to-navigate path around the water, ideal for those with mobility assistance.

The Superiority of Private Care Over Agency Care

There are numerous reasons why private care can often prove superior to traditional agency care. PrimeCarers illustrates this through its business model, priding themselves on always putting client needs first, a stark contrast from the rigid, over-structured approach typically found with agencies.

Lack of Agency Cuts

Agencies tend to take a large percentage fee from their clients. As noted earlier, this can range from 30-50% of the fee you pay. In contrast, PrimeCarers' rates are significantly lower, with figures of 12.5% for live-in care and 15-20% for hourly care. This reduced cost means that you get more care for your money.

More Choice

With agencies, you often have limited choice over who is assigned to you as your carer. On the other hand, with private care, you can choose the carer you feel most comfortable with. This is of paramount importance as having a carer you trust and feel comfortable with improves your overall care experience.


Agency care can often be overly structured, with carers resistant to undertake activities not explicitly stated in the care plan. Private care trumps this rigidity with its flexibility. Carers can both plan and adjust their daily routines around your preferences, introducing a dynamic element to your care.

Consistency of Care

Agencies frequently change carers as staff schedules and the business itself rotates. This inconsistency can affect the stability of care and disturb your comfort level. Private care, like what's offered in Northampton, provides the consistency that agencies cannot, enhancing the quality of care and your peace of mind.


Choosing private care over agency options can significantly enhance your quality of life. From consistent carer support to having your needs taken care of in your own home, private care offers a myriad of benefits. Flexibility, cost-effectiveness and personalised care are the defining differences offered by PrimeCarers in Northamptonshire; a superior choice for anyone requiring tailored support.
