Financial Advice

When you care to give them the very best.

You want to give your loved ones the very best of care but there’s always the question of how much will it cost?

As you would expect, with any private care home, costs and charges vary according to the needs and requirements of the patient but for most people the weekly nursing care fee inclusive of the supplementary charge will be from £648 – £705. Before any arrangement is made to enter the home, we’ll sit down and discuss all the details with you, including ways to pay and any financial advice you may require.

A financial assessment will determine whether you will be required to fully fund your care or if you will be eligible for Healthcare Trust Funding.

You may be interested to know that the majority of our patients come from and are partially funded by our local Northern Trust Board area and fee rates for privately funded patients are exactly the same as those for Trust Funded patients.

Should your savings amount to more than £23,250 you are likely to be required to fund your own care. If this is the case you will still be entitled to receive ‘Nursing Care Allowance’ of £100 per week and also ‘Attendance Allowance’, as well as all your pensions and incomes.

If you have less than £23,250 the Healthcare Trust will contribute towards most of the cost of your care. Current Trust funding however does not meet the full cost of care at Hutchinson Care Homes. This differential is commonly referred to as a supplementary charge. These rates currently are £32 per week (£42 for room with ensuite room), £57 per week Adeleine House from 1st April 2017 – 31st March 2018. Fees are reviewed on an annual basis and are subject to change. Invoices are processed at the end of each month and are paid in arrears preferably by direct debit, however payments can also be made by cheque, cash or on-line banking.
