Indicative Pricing Explained
Every day our teams in our care homes across the country meet hundreds of families and individuals looking for care. We understand how this can be an emotional time and knowing the cost of a potential care home and any funding you are entitled to early in the process can help. As such we are now publishing indicative prices for our homes and have provided a guide to fees and funding.
Please be aware that the indicative prices set out are estimates (based on prices effective from April 2018) and for general guidance and assistance for self-funded residents only.
The final price is dependent upon an individual’s requirements and needs, as identified during the pre-admission assessment, the length of stay and the size and facilities of the room chosen. This will be discussed and agreed prior to moving into the home as will arrangements for paying the weekly fee.
Please contact us to discuss your specific care needs and to gain a better understanding of specific costs. We are always happy to assist with any general enquiries you may have in relation to your fees. You may be entitled to assistance with care home fees.
