Carer -

Why a carer

Because sometimes and extra hand is needed

If you're having trouble coping with daily tasks like washing, dressing, and getting out and about, you might want to explore in-home care. You don't want to end up in a nursing home.

Carers are trained to address your loved one's specific needs. Not only does this provide great care for a senior, but it also gives a family much-needed respite and peace of mind.

Differences between live-in and live-out carers?

Live-in carer

Live in carers live in the home of the family they work for.

The family should furnish them with their very own room and the vital day by day suppers. These remunerations are perceived to be payments in kind which contribute towards the gross salary, in this way bringing down the in general hourly expense of recruiting the live in carer.

Besides, if a person engages the services of a live-in carer and subsequently applies for support from the municipality for home care, the value of the home will not be taken into account in the financial assessment (as opposed to people applying for a place in a home care residence), and the chances of financing improve.

Live-out carer

A live-out carer is a flexible option for those in need of little to no supervision, ad hoc help to get out of bed, personal grooming, and those who may need a hand with shopping, running errands or basic meal preparation.

It is also an excellent way to introduce care into a home as some people can be apprehensive about it at first sight.

How much does it cost?

How much should I pay to my carer?

In some cases carers are limited to support work in the home, in other cases they need to have nursing skills to carry out complex dressings or procedures such as handling a catheter or replacing a colostomy bag.

The level of qualification will determine the carer's salary, which will always be proportional to the responsibilities acquired. Considering those facts, rates would be somewhere in the range of £12 and £25 some factors may make it more expensive.

hundreds of homeowners

Emily Warren 46, London

I work in the City of London and have both a nanny and a housekeeper from Nomenial. I was looking, from the very beginning, for an agency without the picture of a castle in the background: the staff and service of Nomenial are down to earth and friendly - we speak the same language

Michael Brown 51, Manchester

Would highly recommend. I searched around for different options for hiring a live in nanny and then stumbled across Nomenial. Excellent service - cheaper than all the other options.

Cindy Thomas 48, Leeds

It took them several weeks to eventually find me a housekeeper - but i don't mind too much because in the end it was worth the wait. I live in a remote village so I was worried about being able to find someone.

Martha Reynolds 56, London

Very attentive staff. Would recommend and use their services again if needed.

Oliver McKee 49, Edimburgh

To be honest it was a little bit more expensive than I was initially hoping to pay for a nanny, but in fairness the service was excellent and they did make my life easier.

Johnathan Folks 52, London

I'm very satisfied with the service that our family have received from nomenial. It would've been so much more difficult without them to find a housekeeper as flexible.
