Paying for care
We recognise the importance of person centred care that focuses on the needs of the individual. To that end the staff will ensure that a carefully tailored care plan is created based on an individual pre-admission assessment.
This will be planned on your specific needs; therefore the final cost can not be determined until the completion of the assessment and the choice of room available at the time of admission.
The plan of care will be reviewed regularly to ensure that any changing needs are identified and an appropriate level of care is provided at all times. We are, therefore, unable to provide a quote without the necessary information and assessment details.
Social care, unlike healthcare, is not free to everyone. If you have capital assets of over £23000.00* you will be required to pay the full cost of the care provided. This fee starts at £550.00 per week* If you have capital of less than £23000.00* you will be expected to declare your income and savings.
An assessment of your charges will then be made. In this instance you will have a social worker to help you. There is a minimum charge which everyone has to pay and the Department of Social Security (DSS) will ensure that you will at least have sufficient income to meet this charge and be left with a statutory personal allowance.
