Investing in Peace of Mind
We are aware that people looking into care for the first time may not be aware even of the approximate cost of private care services, and our in-home care and full expert management of that care is an investment in your peace of mind.
We encourage you to get in touch with one of our local offices where we can talk you through how our services are costed in more detail. Find our local office near you today.
Q: How do your services dovetail with what is available for free through social services?
A: Social services can provide, for free, some services which upon initial inspection would appear very similar to what Bright Care provide. Social services can provide something called ‘free personal care’ which typically takes the form of short pop-in visits and includes light support with things such as getting washed and dressed, quick meal preparation and medication prompting. This service is not means tested but can take some time to set up.
This service can and does work for some people, however, we often find that families need significantly more support than what social services can offer, particularly if a level of dementia has been diagnosed. People often prefer accessing a much more flexible service in which they feel in control of and one which takes into account the need for socialisation and quality time.
Just because you choose not to access social service care, does not mean you need to loose out on any entitlement. You can now receive some money in lieu of services you choose not to access via the local authority and use it as a contribution toward private arrangements. This arrangement is known as direct payments.
Q: How do you charge me for services and what are the methods of payment?
A: We accept payment by direct debit which we can set up for you. Find out more about planning for the costs of care in our resources section.
