We charge one rate, with no hidden costs or extras

You might be considering care either for yourself or a family member, and whilst residential care is right for some, the alternative is a service that gives you a choice in your care and a package that is uniquely tailored to your individual needs. Candlelight Care can give you that choice by offering a cost-effective and affordable alternative in our Homecare and Live-In care services. Like your care package, our charges are tailored to match your requirements.

Homecare Charges

When choosing a company to provide care at home, cost is obviously a very important consideration. But not all care companies cost their services in the same way, so price comparisons can be misleading. Some companies may offer attractive rates, only for you to find that there are additional costs for care staff travel.

For our homecare services, Candlelight Care charges a straight-forward rate, with no hidden costs or extras, to ensure that you know exactly how much you will be paying in advance.

Cost of Live-In Care

Our Live-In Care service is run independently from Candlelight Care and is called Candlelight24.

Charges are based on a number of factors, including the dependency involved, the level of care skills required and whether you are a single client or a couple. As all our services are uniquely tailored to you, so too is the price of your care. This will be clearly explained to you before any decisions are made and you will be given a full breakdown of the charges. 

Typically, for a single client the cost of Live-In care can be either the same or slightly less than residential care home fees, but for a couple it can be significantly less. The benefit of Live-In care is the high quality one-to-one care that a care home could never match.
