Simple pricing

"The service was excellent and the nurses were very nice people"

Our care prices are straightforward and upfront. There are no extra costs at the weekend or in the evenings. Only bank holidays are different.

Any profits made by St Christopher’s Personal Care are donated to St Christopher’s Hospice to support the work of the charity.

We believe in providing fair, well paid employment to our care workers. This includes paying travel time, which many agencies do not pay their care workers. This may mean our prices are slightly higher than others, but this is not always the case.
