When it comes to care home costs, our team aims to be as transparent and helpful as possible. We understand that paying for care isn’t easy and often financial arrangements may not be in place. Holmer Manor provides quality support and advice to our residents and relatives with the support of the Local Authority and professional advisors.
At Holmer Manor, there are three ways in which fees can be paid –
- The fees are paid in full by the resident’s Local Authority
- The resident’s family pay a ‘top up’ in addition to the Local Authority fees their relative receives
- The fees are solely privately funded
For many families, deciding that a relative needs to receive care can happen quite quickly. Whilst some people can benefit from the 12-week Property Disregard arrangements with their Local Council, this may not apply to everyone. For some privately funded residents, we can defer payment of fees for a period of time in order to allow for financial arrangements to be made.
We recognise that a resident’s financial situation can change over time and we commit to doing everything we can to accommodate such situations and ensure that Holmer Manor is truly a home for life for every resident.
