Fairer Charging Examples

 

Scenario 1

Citizen 'A' receives 10 hours of Home Care per week from a provider who charges £16.17 per hour and has been assessed as having  an assessed maximum contribution of £70.00 per week.

Cost of services is 10 hours x £16.17 / hour = £161.70
Therefore the charge to the citizen is £70.00 per week.

Scenario 2

Citizen 'B' receives 2 hours of Home Care from a provider who charges £16.17 per hour and has been assessed as having an assessed maximum contribution of £80.00 per week

Cost of services is 2 hours x £16.17 / hour = £32.34
Therefore the charge to the citizen is £32.34 per week.

N.B. The £32.34 charge for the 2 hours of Home Care is less than the assessed maximum contribution.

Cost of services is 8 hours x £16.17 / hour = £129.36 plus attendance and transport at £60.00 per week.
Total cost of service is £189.36 per week.

Therefore the charge to the citizen is £12.00 per week.

N.B. The citizen in this scenario cannot afford to pay more than £12.00 per week for their social care services.
