Visiting Care

Visiting care makes it possible for people to continue living independently in their own homes while receiving the dedicated care they need. If you feel as if you could benefit from some extra support with everyday tasks such as dressing or bathing, a carer can visit you in your own home to provide bespoke care for as little as a one-hour visit up to several visits a day.

For over 75 years, Prestige Nursing & Care has been providing compassionate hourly visiting care across England and Scotland. Our care is focused on improving health and overall well-being while allowing you to continue living in the comfort of your own home.

If you are finding some day-to-day activities are becoming too difficult to manage on your own, contact our friendly care experts. They are there to listen to your needs and provide impartial support and guidance.

What is Visiting Care?

Visiting care or hourly care involves a carer visiting you in your home to provide you with the care you need so that you can continue to live an independent life. Whether you require just an hour’s visit or several visits throughout the day, our competent and compassionate carers will be happy to assist you with any of the day-to-day activities you need to continue living life in your way, on your terms.

Home care visits are a flexible solution that can be tailored to meet your own unique care needs, wants and preferences. Our carers are there to provide a helping hand with everything from household tasks and sensitive personal care to cooking your favourite meals or simply sharing a chat over a cup of tea. If there are certain tasks that you prefer to handle on your own such as bathing or dressing, our carers will respect your preferences.

We know that care needs often change, and our visiting care services can be increased or decreased to match your current care and support needs. For those who have complex needs, hourly care can be provided over a 24-hour period.

Why Choose Visiting Care?

Visiting care allows you to receive the care and support you need without having to endure the upheaval and disruption of leaving your treasured home and moving into a care home. There are many benefits to choosing visiting care over other care options:

  • Receive one-to-one support that is completely tailored to your unique needs
  • Maintain your lifestyle and daily routines without worrying about the rigid timetables and rules of a care home
  • Avoid the potential stress of selling your treasured family home
  • Couples can continue living together
  • Continue living with your beloved pets
  • Family and friends will enjoy peace of mind knowing that you are receiving the care you need in your own home
  • Depending on the levels of care you require, receiving visiting care at home may be a cost-effective solution when compared to a care home’s weekly fees

How Much Does Visiting Care Cost?

The cost of hourly visiting care is always based on the levels of care and support you need, with the overall cost being determined by the number and frequency of visits to your home. At Prestige Nursing & Care, we conduct a comprehensive assessment of your needs to accurately assess your hourly cost of care at home. 

You may be entitled to either healthcare funding, social care funding or Government funding to contribute to the cost of care at home. If you are eligible for social care funding, you will need to undergo a care needs assessment. If you will be self-funding home care, you still may be eligible for benefits that can be used to contribute to the cost of your domiciliary care such as Attendance Allowance and Disability Living Allowance.
