Cost of Home Care


We Can Help You Get the Care You Deserve

When deciding the best type of care for you or a loved one, we understand that each care option comes with its own features and benefits. Home Care and Live In care packages are a fantastic alternative to nursing or residential homes as they are competitive in how much they cost, with the added benefits offering a more personalised service and being able to stay in the comfort of your own home.

Using our professional home care service means that you can build positive relationships with the carers who visit, whilst staying safe in the knowledge that the people who are visiting are professionally trained and vetted. You can also rest easy in the knowledge that you won’t be left without support if your carer is unwell or on holiday, or worrying about being responsible for Tax, Insurance or holiday pay.

With Live in care, not only can you stay in the comfort of your own home and stick to your own routines, but you can also build a positive relationship with your live in carer.

When deciding on any elderly care for your loved one, it’s important to consider and plan for the associated financial costs. If your loved one’s savings aren’t enough to cover the cost of home care, they may be eligible to receive help from the local authority in funding and sourcing home care services.

Saxon Care offers support to both self-funding and social services funded clients. 

Self Funded Care

Self-funded care, or private care, is when you pay for care yourself with no help from the local council.

State-funded care, or social-services-funded care, is when your care is paid for by the State, also referred to as: the Government, the local council, local authorities or social services.

Council Funded Care

Whether you or your loved ones are entitled to any financial help from the local authority depends on your income and savings. Local authority will carry out a financial assessment, taking into account things like your income and savings, to give an indication of how much help you would be entitled to. If you have savings above the threshold of £23,250, you will need to fund your care package privately.

Need more information about care costs and funding?

Saxon Care offers support to both self-funding and council-funded clients. As part of our initial assessment, we will be able to assist you with the details and support you through the application process. We are available to answer any questions you may have with regards to funding.

Review from Dave B published on 9 July 2020

“We have been using Saxon Care to help my mum who is elderly and suffers from vascular dementia. They have a great team, very professional with a wealth of knowledge. We have used other companies in the past and they cannot compare to Saxon. I would recommend them and no one else. Great job Saxon Care…keep it up!”

Review from Susan T published on 1 April 2020

The experience of receiving Saxon Care has been all good. The carers discerned what I needed and responded sensitively. Their positive attitude at all times has been invaluable and I shall miss their visits and interesting chats. They have helped me back to a better place in being able to manage personal 
care, but I am so glad to know there is such good care to call on should I need in future. My grateful thanks to all concerned.

Review from B H published on 1 April 2020

Saxon Care gave my father a consistent, quality level of care. They were all very patient and thorough. The service made me feel my father was in good hands.

Review from M L published on 10 January 2020

I would like to say a big thank you for everyone involved in my aunts care, she really adored one certain member of staff and spoke fondly of another. We live in Kent, 3 hours drive from Devizes, but I knew she was in good hands so I did not have to worry. I was always informed of any issue.

Review from B D published on 5 December 2019

“Saxon Care have provided carers for my husband since April 2019. I cannot speak too highly of the agency. All the carers are very efficient and show great kindness to both of us. They have never let us down and appointments have always been kept. The office staff have always dealt with any problems that have arisen with great efficiency and understanding. I would recommend, and have done so, them highly to anyone who needs their services.”
