Kumari's home care services are commissioned either by Social Services, the Health Authority or directly by private individuals.

Services Commissioned by Social Services or the Health Authority

If the local or health authority commissions the service your needs will be assessed by them and agreed with you. You will also be advised if you are to be charged for the service. A Care Plan will be prepared and Kumari will be asked to provide a service in accordance with the Care Plan.

Private Clients

If you wish to purchase a service directly from Kumari a home visit will be required to carry out an initial assessment of your needs and to check that these can be safely met in your home. The service proposed would be discussed and agreed with you and if appropriate a starting date arranged. This assessment is provided free of charge and without obligation.
For private clients wishing to purchase services directly please call us on 01225 428449 and we will send you a Schedule of Charges and a Contract for the Supply of Home Care which should be read carefully before the home visit is arranged.

Kumari staff are always on hand to explain the details of the service and to clarify or explain the terms.
