Home Care in Essex

At TrustedCare we understand the importance of finding the right home care.

Home care is the perfect solution if your loved one values their independence but requires some help in the comfort of their own home in order to make both you and them feel assured that they’re receiving the care they require. At TrustedCare we understand that it may be difficult to find the right home care to suit your specific needs which is why we have created a simple to use online directory of home care providers in and around the Essex area.

To start your journey with us you simply need to connect with one of our friendly Care Advisers on our Care Liaison Team, they’re available 7 days a week via phone, e-mail or live chat, whatever is easiest for you! Your Care Adviser will be able to have a chat with you in order to ascertain your care needs and begin finding providers who would be suitable and that have availability.

The average cost of home care in Essex is £27 per hour but this rate will vary depending on the care provider. In order to find out whether you are eligible for any funding support to help cover your care costs, you will need to request a Financial Assessment from your local authority. The funding thresholds are currently £23,250 so if your assets are assessed as being below this figure, you will be eligible for support. Many of the home care providers below are able to support both long-term and respite care for shorter durations of time providing flexibility. Explore the profiles below to find out what their specialisms are such as whether they can support dementia care, palliative care and care for younger adults.

We understand how difficult and taxing the process of finding home care can be and our main goal is to make your experience as painless and straightforward as possible so why not get in contact with us today?
