Advice when considering someone going into care
A care home does not always mean long term care. We offer support for carers who may need a break for a day or too, or simply just to get some sleep, perhaps a special occasion, or even a couple of hours whilst they do the shopping. As this website is further developed, we can offer advice and useful links for carers and their families, even before they consider a care home for support.
This can be a complex subject. Please visit our useful links,
Age Uk is a good place to start. For existing self funded residents, we recommend you approach us before you reach within three months of the Socail Services lower limit £23,250.00 The process of assessment with Social Services can take three months.
Self funders and Social Services funded residents may apply for continuing care if they or their families feel they need more support. This process can take six months, which is initially started with an assessment usually by the district nurse, then a multidisciplinary team before it goes to panel. Once awarded the Attendance Allowance no longer applies and DWP need to be notified.
