The Costs Involved

Whatever your needs and budget, we have the right carer for you:

Note: You can claim up to 40% tax relief on the following costs if your relative is incapacitated (i.e. they are incapable of caring for themselves).

 

Option 1: ALH Standard Carer (a capable and competent carer willing to do all general duties including personal care)

440 euro per week for 35 hours work (12.58 euro per hour).

Overtime rate to be paid to the carer for working over 35 hours per week: 11 euro gross per hour

Remember the big advantage of live-in carer is that there is someone in your relative’s home at night which will give your relative a great sense of comfort and re-assurance.

Option 2: ALH Carer Plus (a more experienced carer than a standard carer)

465 euro per week for 35 hours work (13.29 euro per hour).

Overtime rate to be paid to the carer for working over 35 hours per week: 12 euro gross per hour

Carer Plus carers will have additional qualifications and/or experience that justify a slightly higher salary. When you contact us, you can let us know which grade of carer you require or if you are willing to consider both Standard Carers and Carers Plus. If you are willing to consider either, this will give us a wider choice of carers to choose from to more exactly match your relative’s needs.

 

Option 3: ALH Nurse (a qualified nurse with experience)

550 euro per week for 35 hours work (15.72 euro per hour).

Overtime rate to be paid to the carer for working over 35 hours per week: 13.31 euro gross per hour

In certain circumstances the care of a qualified nurse is either preferable or essential. They will be able to perform tasks such as checking blood pressure, monitoring blood sugar levels and assisting with certain other medical tasks that a regular carer wouldn’t be capable of. If your relative’s needs warrant the presence of a nurse, then we are able to supply the appropriate person to you.

Option 4: ALH Nurse Plus (a more experienced nurse)

600 euro per week for 35 hours work (17.15 euro per hour).

Overtime rate to be paid to the carer for working over 35 hours per week: 15.11 euro gross per hour

These are nurses whose additional qualifications and/or experience justifies a slightly higher salary. As with the carers, you may be willing to consider both Nurse and Nurse Plus candidates and this would give us a wider choice of candidates to choose from in order to select the best candidate for your relative’s needs.

Important: Our placement/monitoring fee is not included in the above costs.
