Frequently Asked Questions

What is a residential care home?

A residential care home is any facility that provides accommodation and care for those who are unable to look after themselves. Those at Colliers Croft and Damfield live on the premises and receive round-the-clock, personalised care, but are still able to be independent and enjoy being a part of the local community.

What is the difference between a nursing home and a residential home?

A ‘residential home’ is any care home with live-in service users. A ‘nursing home’ is a care home that also provides care from registered nurses, who devise care plans, administer treatments, and so on. Although Colliers Croft and Damfield provide excellent 24-hour individualised care to their residents, neither offer nursing assistance, and are therefore residential homes.

How much does a residential care facility cost?

The costs of residential care homes can vary depending on the home, the resident, services provided, and other factors. Please get in touch to learn more.

What are the different types of care homes?

The main types of care homes are ‘residential care homes’ – live-in homes for the elderly with full-time care, such as that provided by Colliers Croft and Damfield – and ‘nursing homes’, which also provide nursing assistance. Some homes are ‘dual-registered’, meaning they are able to provide both types of care, and others still are classed as ‘independent living’: self-contained flats or apartments within care home buildings that residents can buy or rent as their own.

When will I need to pay my own fees?

In most cases, residents are responsible for paying their own fees. If your “capital” is valued under £23,250, then your local authority will provide assistance. Capital means your house, savings and any investments you have.

If your spouse still lives in your home this is “disregarded” when calculating your capital balance. Any joint accounts will be split 50:50.

What happens if my property is my only asset I own when I need to move into a care home and it will take time to release funds from it?

Speak to the care home and they will be able to advise you about their policy.

Speak to your social services about the 12 week property disregard scheme where social services will fund your fees while you sell your home. You may still need to pay a top up if the local authority only pays at their rate.

What if I don’t want to sell my house?

You may be eligible for a Deferred Payments scheme. This is where the local authority pays your fees and takes a charge on your house. They will charge you interest. All local authorities operate the scheme slightly differently so you will need to contact them directly.

When will the NHS pay for care home fees?

If you have complex health needs, the NHS will meet your care home fees. This funding is known as Continuing HealthCare (CHC) and is not means tested. There are very strict criteria and most nursing home residents are not eligible. There is more guidance on the NHS website.

What does the care home fee cover?

The fee should cover your accommodation costs, meals and essential care. Before you choose a home, check out what extras are chargeable. For example, hairdressing, physiotherapy and chiropody are often charged on top of fees.
