Advice on how carers are paid
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
