Cost of hourly care
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 £16 per hour and £23 per hour.
Quality, local carers from between £16 per hour and £23 per hour.
For the best quality of care, we pay our carers more than other care agencies. By paying our carers more, we attract experienced, motivated carers who are chosen for their caring nature and love of helping others.
At TrustonTap, we don’t just say “we want to reward our carers more”, we pay them significantly more than other agencies, even up to 50% more. By securing the best quality carers, we can genuinely provide great care.
We believe quality care should be affordable, so we don’t charge you more for our experienced carers. We ensure that our commission rate is kept very low so that 80% of what you pay goes directly to the self-employed carer.
Fully-vetted, experienced local carers
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 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.
