Key Information

We have collated some key facts and information on care fees and funding as advice and practical support with understanding paying for yourself or a loved one.

If you still have questions don’t hesitate to contact the Rotherwood Healthcare team, who will be happy to help and guide you through the process.

Our Fees

Weekly fees are individual to each resident and are based on their personal needs. A resident’s needs are determined via a pre-admission assessment carried out by a professional member of our team. The fee proposal considers a resident’s overall care needs, any additional support or specialist equipment that is needed to provide the appropriate care and their choice of bedroom.

Once agreed, the weekly fee will be reviewed and increased on an annual basis. The date of this annual fee uplift is April, however, it’s important to note that due to the individual nature of the weekly fee, a significant change in care needs or a move to a different room may mean that the fee needs to be reviewed earlier.

Funding Types

Local Authority Funded Residents We accept residents funded by the Local Authority; however dependent upon the care home, the needs of the resident and the accommodation chosen, an additional contribution may need to be paid by the resident or next of kin to satisfy the difference between that paid by the Local Authority and the care home fee.

NHS Funded Nursing Care (FNC) The NHS provide a contribution to the nursing care required by each resident, our fees are exclusive of this contribution which is commonly known as FNC (Funded Nursing Care) contribution.

Care and Support Needs

Residents living within our homes have wide-ranging health and personal care needs. Prior to a resident being admitted into our care home, we carry out an in-depth needs assessment to ensure that we are best placed to provide the right care to each individual.

The needs assessment ensures that we have the right number of suitably qualified professional nursing and care staff with the right balance of skills and expertise to deliver appropriate, exceptional care. Most residents care needs fall within our standard care delivery parameters; however upon assessment we identify that some residents have additional care needs that require increased staffing ratios to deliver the appropriate level of care.

Specialist Equipment Most specialist equipment is provided by the care home or the NHS dependent upon a person’s needs; from time to time if very specialist equipment is needed that we are unable to fund we will discuss options.

Your Stay

Choice of Bedroom Many of our homes offer a range of different bedroom options and sizes from standard rooms through to premium en-suite garden rooms; all rooms that provide additional facilities carry a supplement.

Hampton Grange also has the option of shared rooms for couples and friends.

TV Licencing All residents living in our home can watch TV’s in public areas under the care homes’ own TV Licence. Residents living with us who wish to have a TV in their bedroom must pay the concessionary £7.50 licence.

Requirements on Admission

We will provide you with two copies of our contract and ask that you read it carefully and return a signed copy prior to admission. It lets us know that you are happy with the arrangements we have made for you at our home, that you understand our relationship with you and the terms on which you are a resident. The remainder of the month must be paid on the date of admission and then billing will be on the 1st of the month thereafter.
