When to move; is it the right time?
Every day our team meets 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.
You or your relative might need to move to one of our homes for a number of reasons, the needs that require care might have increased due to a progression in a medical, physical or emotional need. It might be because the family or carer is no longer able to provide the right kind of support the person, whatever the reason, moving can be really difficult, practically and emotionally, for everyone involved.
For a successful move we have found that involving the person right from the start is vita. We understand that it is hard for family and carers but in our experience if they are positive about the move, about the benefits to the person and making sure they have a say in the choices made the person is far more likely, to settle quickly into their new home and make friends.

Paying for Care
There are several ways that payment is made, Full Local Authority Funding, Split Funding and Self-funding/private funders.
We can support you to contact your local Authority or NHS (CCG) funders to access funding. The process can take time and we will not be able to agree a date for you to move in until we have confirmation of funding.
Split funding between (NHS) CCG and LA: The local authority will determine what contributions are to be made by the person or their estate, this is known as a top up.
Full LA funding; the LA will determine what is to be contributed towards the costs i.e. Pension, estate contribution.

Local Authority carry out an assessment of need as well as a financial assessment. Based on this assessment will determine who and at what level funding will be provided and detail of any contributions to be made by the person or their estate.
