Fees and Funding
Your Guide to Fees and Funding
Moving into a care home can be daunting, no more so than when looking into the complex process of paying for care. When the time comes to choose a care home, you’ll need to know how much it will cost and any care funding you’re entitled to.
Whether people decide to become a resident with Four Seasons or at another care home, we strongly advise everyone to seek expert independent financial help before making any final decisions. In order to make life easier we have contacted a national care fees planning specialist, Symponia who are dedicated to the financial issues of later life, in particular the payment of care fees. Through Symponia’s network of carefully selected and qualified financial advisers they offer you and/or your family member empathetic, bespoke advice on the best way to fund weekly care fees. This approach ensures that not only are all our residents and their families aware of the legislation and how it works but they are able to explore all the financial options available to them. Your local Four Seasons care home will be able to direct you to your nearest Symponia member and can provide you with a digital copy of the Trusted Care Fees Planning Guide published by Symponia.
It should be noted that Four Seasons and Symponia operate completely independently with no commission or financial benefit to Four Seasons as a result of your conversation or contract.

Subject to funding criteria, your care home of choice will have to undertake a clinical assessment which determines the type of care package that best suits your needs. Your care home of choice will undertake a pre-admission assessment to see if the home can meet your needs.
