What are home care services?

Home care services are when care and support is delivered directly to people in the comfort of their own homes.

Also known as care at home, or domiciliary care, home care from Carefound Home Care enables you to continue to enjoy an independent life at home, with the support of a professional carer when you need it. Our home care services are managed locally and all of our branches are rated Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). You can choose flexible hourly home care, 24-hour live-in care, or short-term respite care, and our care encompasses a range of domiciliary care services such as personal care, mobility care, medication management or complex care for specialist medical conditions.

Whether you are needing basic help in the home or companionship, or you need more extensive support, our local team of care professionals are able to provide home care services tailored to your needs and preferences.

“The carers who look after Dad have been amazing and the support from management has been excellent. The management and carers have been professional, caring, approachable and empathetic. As a daughter this is important to me and as a Nurse, as I pride myself in respecting a patient’s dignity, safety, health and well-being. I feel reassured that Dad is in safe hands”

Daughter of Mr H, York

Your care is managed by our local branch which ensures that we are able to maintain exceptional levels of support for our carers, our clients and their families. We provide this 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We also recruit our carers from our local areas.

Expertly trained carers

All of our carers undergo an extensive recruitment process including interviews, reference checks and an Enhanced DBS Check. They then complete our leading training programme which goes beyond mandatory requirements and includes supporting specialist health conditions.

A fully managed service

We remove the burden of families having to manage care themselves. This includes visiting and contacting our clients and carers regularly, and constant monitoring of your care including any concerns or issues. We also invest in training, supervising, developing and supporting our carers.

Improved health outcomes

We have a proven track record of improving health outcomes including reducing falls, managing signs of deterioration and lowering the risk of hospital admissions. Our proactive approach is supported by our innovative technology and reduces reliance on hospitals and other NHS services.

Home care services FAQs

Home care refers to a range of tailored care and and support services provided in the comfort of one's home. It might include companionship, meal preparation, help with medications, or even general help around the home. It can also include more specialist support for managing a health condition or recovering from illness.

Home care costs depend on the amount of care required and your location, but hourly rates typically start from around £30 per hour. There may also be a charge for the carer's travel costs to and from your home. Prices will also be available for 30-minute home care visits or overnight care.

The cost of home care depends how much support you require during the day or night, however home care is often a cost effective alternative to residential care. This is especially the case for couples or people who only need a few hours of care at home each day.

You will only be eligible for home care funded by the NHS if you require intermediate care or reablement after a stay in hospital, or if you have a serious disability or primary health need which qualifies you for NHS continuing healthcare. In order to access NHS continuing healthcare you'll need to go through a full assessment to find out if you are eligible (the majority of your care must involve managing your health needs, rather than social care or personal care). Other funding options for home care are benefits entitlements (e.g. Attendance Allowance, Pension Credit), local authority funding which is means tested, or paying for your care privately.

Domiciliary care involves somebody receiving one-to-one care in their own home from a professional carer, whilst a residential care home is where individuals move into an institutional care home or nursing home where they receive care from care assistants working on shift across the building. People who choose home care often do so to retain their privacy, routines and independence.
