The decision to choose in-home care or at-home care is one that we all need to make carefully. Some people find it beneficial to have a caregiver come into the house for a few hours every day, while others prefer caregivers who are available 24/7. The costs vary depending on your needs and what you’re looking for but there are some things you should consider before making your final decision such as the cost of in-home care and at-home care.
Your Care Options
The first thing to think about when deciding if you want in-home care or at-home care is considering what level of health your loved one has. For example, someone with a severe disability will need more time from the caregiver than someone who can move around on their own.
The next consideration is whether there are any safety concerns. For example, if you have an elderly loved one who lives alone and is usually home all day, the need for in-home care could be a good option. Our needs change, and aspects of living independently become more difficult. For example, getting up and down stairs or in and out of the bath.
Considerations For the Cost of In-Home Care
Deciding on the best outcome will be based on what the client wants and needs, but there must be consideration of how much it will cost.
With Verina Daly Care, we offer three different types of care:

As our team are local to Hampshire, you will have the same team of friendly faces on rotation. We will help you with personal care, companionship, appointments and friend and family get togethers!
- Short Visits Home Care. Our carers can support you with a range of tasks from medication, light housework, meal preparation and even admin tasks too. It can be available from 30 minutes to however long you need.
- Specialist Home Care. We have carers that specialise in Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and end of life on a 24-hour care service.
Families are now looking to professional home care providers for specialist care, rather than deciding to choose a residential care home. Allowing their loved ones to remain at home where they are in a familiar and comfortable environment.

The average annual UK care home fees in 2019-20 were between £35,000-£50,000 depending on how much care is required.
