Advice on how carers are paid

Claritycare2021Claritycare2021 Member Posts: 1 Listener
Hi, I am trying to find advise for a client who is living with am acquired brain injury and paralysis. He has live in care and additional domiciliary support visiting. Currently the carers are provided weekly petty cash to support daily needs. However, we would like to change over to a contactless payment system to protect both client and carers from additional contact risks associated(i.e. Covid). We can only find third party payment cards that have a specific persons named on them. This does not support having multiple visiting carers being able to use card. Does anyone have any suggestions on this or know of any other payment care which can be used by anyone? Many thanks in advance

    Hi and welcome 

    Sorry I have no knowledge of this area but hopefully others will be able to advise 

    Maybe social services can advise or a care agency who may deal with this for other clients

    @janer1967, hello, have you mentioned it to your bank they maybe able to help or advise the best way forward. You may have to have your own card reader or something to be able to transfer money from one account to another using chip and pin.
