The Charity aims to provide the highest quality of care for residents and to keep fees at an affordable level. They are benchmarked within the local area. Our weekly fee rates are set according to the type of care required.
Taken together, these fees do not cover the full cost to the Charity of providing our specialist care. The Charity provides a significant subsidy for all residents.

Funded Nursing Contribution (FNC)
Following admission to the Home, the Charity will contact the National Health Service (NHS) and ask them to carry out an assessment of the resident for the purposes of FNC. The FNC is a contribution towards the cost of the resident’s nursing care which the NHS can award if the resident meets the NHS’s eligibility criteria. The NHS will notify the resident whether FNC has been awarded.
If the NHS awards FNC, the NHS will make payments to the Charity. These payments are currently £165.56 per week. The Charity will set the receipt of FNC payments against amounts which are invoiced to the resident in respect of their care.
If the NHS does not award FNC following an assessment, then the resident or their family may liaise with the Home Manager to request a further FNC assessment by the NHS if the resident’s nursing care needs change.
Sources of funding
Before an application to live with us can progress, funding arrangements must be in place. For applicants seeking permanent residence, there are three possible sources of funding:
- Social Services Funding
- NHS Continuing Care Funding
An applicant with assets in excess of the threshold set by Government (currently £23,250) will be regarded as self-funding. The Charity includes the applicant’s share of any property when applying this threshold .
Social services funding
An applicant may be eligible for Social Services funding if the value of their assets are below the figure set by the Government (currently £23,250). In this case the applicant will need to apply to their local Social Services Department for an assessment of needs. The Charity is prepared to enter into negotiations with Social Services Departments in order to attempt to agree an appropriate level of funding.
NHS Continuing Care Funding
Some residents with significant nursing care needs may qualify for 100 per cent NHS funding. If you would like to discuss how to apply for NHS Continuing Care Funding, please contact one of our Homes.
Veterans Agency funding
Applicants in receipt of 100 per cent War Disability Pensions and a full attendance allowance may apply to the Veterans Agency for consideration for funding for short-break care. The Veterans Agency does not provide funding for long-term care.
