Transport and Outings
Our staff can provide you with transport to and from medical appointments, for shopping or on outings. This will be charged at an agreed rate of 40p per mile. For medical appointments, travelling and waiting time for staff will be charged at the normal hourly rate. We must have at least 24 hours’ notice if you wish to use this service. If public transport is required, all transport costs must be paid for by you. When on outings with staff, an agreed food and drink allowance will be made of £8, unless an alternative amount is agreed on the day at your discretion.
All requirements for care must be booked in with the office with at least one weeks’ notice given, in order for us to be able to accommodate for all care requirements.
We must be given a minimum of 24 hours’ notice to cancel a care call. If 24 hours’ notice is not received then you will be charged for the call at the normal rate, unless agreed otherwise. If you choose to send the carer home before the end of the shift then you will still be charged for the remainder of the call.
If extra hours are required, please give at least 48 hours’ notice. These will be charged at the normal agreed rate.
If one of our Carers is not able to, or fails to attend your call for whatever reason, we will endeavour to organise for an alternative Carer to attend as soon as possible. If we are not able to fulfil the call, you will not be charged.
