Many families worry about funding the care of their loved ones. Being a charity means we can keep our private fees reasonable. Our care home, Russell Churcher Court, currently accommodates privately funded and local authority funded residents. Included within the fees are all meals, laundry and care.
Residents who have been assessed and accepted for funding by Hampshire County Council do not have to pay top up fees beyond the ‘Hampshire Rate’. Funding by Hampshire County Council is determined through an individual financial assessment conducted by Hampshire Adult Social Services, and the level agreed is dependent upon a number of factors including available savings and pensions. This means that, in accordance with the aims of the Trust, no individual is excluded on the grounds of their ability to pay. (Please note this does not apply to the 12 week disregard or local authority loan residents because they are likely to have the necessary assets).
