The Consistency of Private Care

Private care is more than just a service; it’s about building relationships based on trust and understanding. By choosing a Private Carer in South Ayrshire, you exert control over who comes into your home to provide care. This ensures a consistent delivery of personalised care, tailored to your needs.

As a client, you have an integral part to play in selecting a professional who would resonate not only with your needs but also your personality. Having the same person taking care of you can foster a deeper level of trust and understanding in comparison to the regular changing care rotas associated with agencies. The consistency of the same carer allows for a more person-centred care provision.

Affordability of Private Carers

Choosing a private carer does not necessarily mean compromising on affordability. With PrimeCarers, we believe in supporting carers in earning a fair wage for their time and expertise while ensuring services are affordable to clients. Thus, PrimeCarers charges a modest introductory fee for live-in care of just 12.5% of the care cost, while the fee for hourly care ranges from 15-20% of care expenditure.

This model significantly reduces the percentage that clients would customarily pay to traditional care agencies, which generally take a cut of between 30-50% of care costs. Here, you are guaranteed more value for what you pay, as the bulk of your payment is directly used to reward the hard work and dedication of your chosen carer.

The Comfort of Home

There is a unique comfort that comes with providing care in the familiar, homely environment. The recipient can maintain their independence to an extent and continue with their usual routines and activities while receiving support as and when needed.

In contrast to a facility-based care environment, home care does not impose rigid schedules and regimes. It enables the client to participate in their usual activities such as gardening, or visiting an old friend while being supported. This radically enhances the quality of life and well-being.

The Perfect Match

At PrimeCarers, we understand that everyone is unique, and that's why we match our clients to carers based on over 80 different factors. These factors include shared interests, personality traits, specific care needs, and more, assuring compatibility and the perfect match every time.

In contrast with traditional agencies, where care assignments may be determined largely by geographic location and availability, PrimeCarers provides a more personalised and client-centred service. The high level of matching ensures the correct rapport, companionship, and of course, the highest degree of care standards are maintained.

Ideal for Couples

Private care offers an excellent solution for couples who need support. PrimeCarers has the capability to support both parents at home for an average cost of £1,218 per week. This childcare solution assures the comfort of home, affordability, and the continuity of care. The couples' care guide gives more information on this.

Exploring South Ayrshire

Private carers not only provide in-home support but also facilitate the integration of clients to their local community. South Ayrshire is blessed with breathtaking attractions such as the Culzean Castle and Country Park, the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, and Alloway Auld Kirk that could add immense value to your overall quality of life. A private carer can also take you on a scenic drive along the Ayrshire Coastal Path.

Unlike agency carers who can be overly rigid, private carers appreciate that good care extends beyond the confines of your home. Outings to local attractions can be part of your healthy lifestyle and social integration strategy.

Private Care Versus Agency Care

Deciding how to arrange care for yourself or a loved one can be a challenging task. Private care offers a more flexible, client-focused, and cost-effective solution compared to agency care.

Agency care can be a convenient option, but they are often characterised by high staff turnover and rotating care schedules, which can result in inconsistencies in the quality of care provided, and difficulty in building rapport between carer and patient. Additionally, agencies tend to be more expensive, taking a higher percentage of the fees.

On the other end, private care, as facilitated through PrimeCarers, ensures that clients have more say in who provides their care. This high degree of choice and the consistency of a preferred carer can make a world of difference to the delivery of care. Furthermore, the cost of care is significantly reduced as PrimeCarers is committed to taking a lower fee to provide affordable quality care services.

With PrimeCarers, you can enjoy the benefits of private care such as continuity, affordability, remaining in the comfort of your own home, compatibility, ideal care solutions for couples, and opportunities to explore South Ayrshire. Essentially, PrimeCarers provides not just care but also a way of life. Choose private care for a better care experience.
