How much does it cost?
A weekly fee consists of a sum for personal care plus an amount for nursing care. Fees vary according to the nursing needs of the individual and is assessed by a designated nurse assessor. Residents may be eligible for means-tested funding from Social Services and will have their fees set out in a Social Services Care Plan prior to admission. Most people will be expected to pay something towards the cost of their care and accommodation from their income and capital.
Residents can also be self-funded and pay for their fees directly. For further information please speak to our Finance Department by email or telephone 01406 422283 option 4.
