What is Hourly or Visiting care?

Hourly care, Visiting care or domiciliary care can help those who need extra support with day-to-day tasks remain independent in their own home. From help getting up in the mornings, to taking medication, our highly-trained carers can help with a variety of daily tasks.

We know that things can change after a fall or return from a hospital stay and you may need more support on a regular basis. We understand that each person’s care needs may be different and we can help provide the right care depending on individual circumstances. From a short daily visit to a dedicated carer visiting several times a day, hourly care is a good care option for many people.

Our wonderful carers can help support you with:

  • Personal care and hygiene.
  • Regular Companionship – company and conversation whether you live alone or are recently bereaved.
  • Food and meal preparation – having someone to prepare your meals can transform how you feel about food. Carers can keep an eye on whether your loved one is eating well with good nutritious food.
  • Help with running errands, grocery shopping, and support with social activities.
  • General home help and housekeeping. Our carers can help with those jobs that have just become too difficult. We know there may be a particular way you like things done.
Why choose Hourly Home Care?

Hourly care is ideal for those who could benefit from some one-on-one time with a carer, but don’t require a live-in carer. It may be that your loved one needs some companionship during the day to get them out and about, or someone to just be there. We can help provide support or post-operative care for as long as you need, with the flexibility to suit your requirements.

You can arrange hourly or visiting care as little or often as you need. Whether it be a several short 1-hour visits, a few hours, or even help overnight. Our local carers are very experienced and trustworthy, and we don’t require uniform which often makes them feel more like a friend. We can work with you and your family to provide the very best standard of care.

How much does Hourly Care cost?

We believe that high-quality home care should be available to those in need and believe our prices are affordable and always tailored to your unique care needs. At TrustonTap, all visits are a minimum of one hour, ensuring care isn’t rushed. This can be several visits a day if required with prices between £14 per hour and £19 per hour.

We always take the time to listen to your care needs first, and will then suggest suitable carers near you, who can provide you with the right type of care at the times you need. You can approve the carers we recommend before booking them or making any commitment. Should your main carer take a holiday, alternative carers can be arranged to ensure consistency of care.

All of our carers are experienced and fully-vetted before they become a TrustonTap carer, and we take less than 5% of those who apply to join. There are no long contracts, and notice periods for cancellation can be very short.

We understand the importance of retaining your independence and often acknowledging it’s time to seek more help can be difficult.

Our hourly or visiting home care can support those who need just a bit of extra help, perhaps need companionship, or for those with Dementia. A regular short visit can make the world of difference to someone who is beginning to struggle more with day-to-day tasks. It can make life easier, more enjoyable, and less lonely for you and your family.
