Our Elderly Home Care Pricing
Investing in your peace of mind
At Bright Care, we appreciate that looking into care for the first time may feel complicated, and sometimes the financial implications of getting private care can be cause for concern. Our fully-managed and bespoke elderly care services are an investment in your peace of mind, and more importantly, in the quality of life of your loved ones.
Our care packages are tailored to individual needs, hence the costs vary according to the type of necessary care. We are committed to being fully transparent in terms of our costs, and we encourage you to get in touch with one of our local branches where we can talk you through how our services are costed in more detail.
Important to know
Wherever you are in the UK, it is important for you to know the level of support your local council can provide you with, so you can make decisions about getting the appropriate care services in place.
Sometimes local council support is not enough. Indeed, most of the assistance provided takes the form of short pop-in visits that include light support with things such as getting washed and dressed, quick meal preparation and medication prompting. Vital factors such as companionship, cultivating hobbies and sharing interests are not front and centre.
Instead, with visits from two hours or more, our Bright Carers place huge importance on building quality and meaningful relationships for your loved ones to keep living their lives to the full, in the comfort of their own homes.
Costs of introductory agencies Vs fully-managed Bright Care service
Introductory agencies are cheaper than fully-managed care providers like Bright Care. This is because they are not regulated by the national care regulatory bodies. Rather they only introduce self-employed carers to their clients, and have no obligation to provide training. The carers might also be registered with multiple agencies at the same time. After the introduction of the carer, it is the family who have a legal contract with them and have full ownership of the service’s management.
We chose to be a fully-managed care provider, which means all our Bright Carers are hand-picked by us, and go through our market leading training programme led by the Bright Care Academy. Moreover, our Bright Carers are PVG or DBS compliant, and our services are regulated by the Care Inspectorate in Scotland, and the Care Quality Commission in England. The additional benefit of our fully managed service means someone is available for you 24 hours a day, every day of the week, through our on-call service.
Value for money:
Bright Care vs care homes
Care homes are usually more expensive than private in-home care. Moreover, staying in a care home means moving away from the neighbourhood of a lifetime, often far from family and friends, and from the comfort of a home full of memories. Belongings will need to fit in one room, and your loved ones will have less independence and privacy. Care homes sometimes have restricted visiting times, and therefore you wouldn’t always be able to visit them as much as you would like.
With Bright Care, your loved ones will receive tailored and bespoke care, as we work alongside them to promote their independence. They will have a small team of Bright Carers who will be matched according to their needs and interests. Most importantly, they will remain at home, close to the people they love, and will be supported through those little moments in life.
Real Value For Families
Bright Care have been helping look after my elderly father (who’s now 92) for a number of years. I did a lot of research before choosing them and have never regretted my decision. They’re 100% reliable, flexible and very understanding of Dad’s needs. The carers don’t just ‘do their job’—they do it with kindness, compassion and a great deal of professionalism. They often go above and beyond and Dad very much looks forward to their regular visits.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. An outstanding service.
Bright Care have been helping my mum (and me!) for six months – their support has made a huge difference to us both. The carers are reliable, flexible and highly professional, doing whatever they can to maintain mum’s independence and quality of life. Being able to rely on their support has relieved the pressure on me and given me some breathing space. Full marks to everyone in the Bright Care team.
