Testimonial from a Self Funder
“We came to Local Support Team in October/November 2013 our 92 year old Aunt had a fall and after 9 weeks in a home recovering. We enrolled her with a large care at home franchise care company for personal care at an annual cost of £13,500 pounds, it quickly became obvious that the money resources at this rate would soon be defeated.
We were recommended to Local Support Team for advice and to find a more defined course to suit our needs. Local Support Team pieced together a personal package to suit the circumstances. Local Support Team then set about providing the necessary information out into the public domain to enable us to recruit two personal carers, that would provide homecare as and when needed.
Local Support Team guided us through all aspects of interviews and provided us with advice and we were able to put the new carer package to work within two weeks. Local Support Team provides us with a professional payroll service and has always been available to help us through with ideas and solutions to issues which sometimes occur.
Local Support Team has cut our annual care costs by approx £5,000, we know now this can be sustained with our income. We have a carer 24/7 and 356 days a year. We have been provided with reviews to make sure that all is well with staff and client.
We could not do this without the commitment of Local Support Team and we thank you very much.”
