There are a number of ways to finance residential care: personally (e.g. from savings, pensions or the sale of your home), through your family, or, in part, by the Local Authority.
Whilst the majority of our residents are entirely privately funded, Local Authority payments can also be “topped up” by supplemental private funding. Our all-inclusive policy is a standard feature for all residents and the fee level is the same whether you are entirely privately funded or you have some assistance from the Local Authority. Kingfisher Court has been awarded the top band fee from Nottinghamshire Council helping to close the gap between LA payments and independent top up.
Whilst financial regulations prohibit us from providing detailed individual advice, our Home Managers will be happy to provide you with general information in relation to funding and talk you through our fees and how we charge.
Have a look at this useful link to www.carefc.co.uk, a Not-For-Profit organisation that provides excellent guidance on your possible care home funding options.
There may be instances where care requirements change and additional charges have to be made, or funding is made available as a result. In these rare and exceptional instances, we can discuss specific cases of care to assist you.
If you would like to learn more about our homes, please feel free to contact one of our Home Managers to visit us and discuss your potential options
