Here you can find the prices for our elderly companionship care service, as well as financial assistance that might be available to you.

Viva Independent Living provide companionship services for the elderly in Edinburgh.

Standard Service

Monday – Friday

2 Hour Appointment | £46

Our standard service consists of a 2 hour appointment for which we charge £46 within normal working hours. If there is a specific task which we have been asked to help with which lasts for less than 2 hours, we will still stay for the full 2 hours, (unless you wish otherwise).  Even if it’s only for a chat over a cup of tea.  If the task unexpectedly takes a little more than the planned 2 hours, don’t worry we will see it through (and there won’t be an extra charge).

Saturday & Sunday

2 Hour Appointment | £57
We are open 10am – 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays

Extended Service

Over 2 Hours | £12.00 per half hour

Viva recognise that some things will take more than 2 hours, we are delighted to help over longer periods.  After the first 2 hours we charge £12.00 for each additional half hour.  Please feel free to discuss your exact requirements with us – we will find a way to help.

Financial Assistance and Funding

In most cases our services are paid for by our customers or other family members.

There are also a number of  schemes where customers can qualify for financial assistance from their local authorities or the Government which they can use for their Viva Companionship Service. We can help point you in the right direction to apply for these.
