Prepaid Card for Care

Welcome to Carercard. A first for care, young and the more elderly.

Carercard is a prepaid card programme, designed especially for those organising care on behalf of the young and the more elderly.


The benefits for you

Used by your carer instead of cash, it’s ideal for food and general shopping and you can track spending whenever you want. You’re welcome to apply.

Greater security of money handling compared to cash, or using a borrowed card

Ease of use of the card for online and shopping in stores

Ability to view the card balance and spend (online), with reports available on transactions


Shop safely and easily with Carercard – free subscription for first three months

Carercard has many benefits if you need help with shopping and want a secure and easy means of payment.

Try Carercard for three months and see the benefits for yourself. Then you can continue using and pay a monthly subscription or stop. It is as easy as that.
After three months, a subscription of £7 per month is charged from the card balance. This covers card transactions and general card usage, with a few exceptions.
From our own experience of care, this feels like a small cost to have a safe, easy and adaptable housekeeping payment service, when you cannot always be nearby and able to help.

The fees are described in full, with our Privacy Policy, in our Hestian Privacy Policy and Terms of Service

You can cancel Carercard at any time, with no penalty. See our Hestian Terms of Service
