Residential care home fees vary across locations, but at Brendoncare our fees are all-inclusive and assessed on your needs before you move in.
You may also be entitled to benefits or support with your fees, you can find out more here.
At Brendoncare we understand the financial worry of affording care and so we are proud to offer our Care for Life Promise, which ensures residents have a home for life even if their financial situation changes.
Residential care homes offer live in accommodation within a home-style setting. Staff are on hand 24/7 to help with everyday tasks and activities. Nursing homes offer the same, but with the addition of a registered nurse on site to provide more advanced medical tasks. Find out more about our nursing homes here.
Residential care offers comfortable accommodation, with home-cooked, nutritional meals and help with personal care needs. Staff are on hand to provide support with everyday tasks, such as washing, dressing and the administration of medication.
Residential care enables people to remain independent with the added reassurance that support from our care team is available 24 hours a day.
Our staff also work with local GPs and other healthcare professionals to ensure each individual is supported appropriately for their own needs.
Each Brendoncare home offers a full range of activities, from music and gentle exercise to pamper sessions and films. Naturally however, these are optional, allowing residents to take part in as much or as little of the programme as they like.
Extra care housing, sometimes called assisted living or close care, is a type of ‘housing with care’ where people retain their independence but can also receive assistance with everyday tasks such as washing, dressing or taking medication. Brendoncare has five sites that offer extra care housing. Find out more.
Whilst is can be the case, it is unusual for relatives to pay for care homes. Most of our residents fund their own care and funds will come from a mixture of public and private sources such as state/private pensions, state benefits such as Attendance Allowance or Funded Nursing Care, savings, investments or care plans such as care needs annuities.
Paying for care is a big financial commitment and everyone’s situation is different so we have put together an outline of the key aspects, including an explanation of what makes Brendoncare unique – our charitable Care for Life promise.
Families are welcome to visit anytime, including joining their loved one for meals. Brendoncare homes have someone available to welcome you 24/7.
Whilst we are still living with covid we ask that you book ahead. Please see https://www.brendoncare.org.uk/news/coronavirus-guidance-for-brendoncare or contact the home for more information.
At Brendoncare we want everyone to feel right at home. We encourage residents to personalise their space with their own furniture and treasured items, and welcome friends and family to visit anytime.
