The cost of home care must be both reasonable and predictable. Financing care with Sam2Sam Deaf Care Service Ltd is a matter of building a package to suit your lifestyle and needs. We deliver home care services in a minimum of three-hour visits, with additional hours available after this, with care that is flexible that can adapt to your changing needs, you can rest assured that you will always have a carer there when you need them. Your fees are determined according to whether or not you are being financially supported by your Local Authority, and any other funding support you receive.
For more intensive support, live-in care could be the ideal solution if you require someone to assist you round-the-clock with your care needs. Your very own live-in carer will provide one-to-one person centred support – giving you peace of mind that you always have help available should you need it.
Live-in care can either be for a sustained amount of time with no planned end date or in the form of respite care, which is for short-term solutions lasting less than four weeks.
