How much does Live in Care cost?

Prema Care is known to be one of the most cost-effective Introductory Agencies that those seeking live-in care arrangements can access. We believe that it’s important for planning and peace of mind that you should know exactly how much your carer is being paid, and that all costs are transparent and known upfront.

How does it work?

Each care placement is assessed on an individual basis. There is a usually a higher rate for complex care, such as incontinence support, physical mobility issues or advanced stages of dementia etc, but we’ll talk you through everything and make sure it’s all transparent.
