I am writing on behalf of myself and my daughters to thank you and your staff most sincerely for your care of Kathryn during her stay with you. The carers were, without exception, most friendly and kind in their dealings with Kathryn even on occasions when she was perhaps not very co-operative. Will you please convey our gratitude to the members of staff involved.
I just want to say a very big thank you for the way you looked after my lovely sister so well, you were all so kind.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay here this week and I can’t thank you all enough for making me feel and showing me the ropes. It has been a great experience and one I will never forget you have giving me many opportunities and I have been able to get a real feel for working in the industry. I love it! Wish I could stay with you all.
My mum has been at Damfield Gardens since November 2018 and what can I say? The professionalism of the staff, the care they take of her (both mentally and emotionally) and the trust she has in them give us immense reassurance that the hardest decision my family has ever had to make has been the right one for her. Particularly in this extremely difficult COVID-19 times, the home has put the health and wellbeing of the residents and staff at the forefront of their daily lives – as a family, we will forever be grateful.

Our Damfield site offers residential care for the elderly: round-the-clock, personalised care from dedicated staff. We also provide dementia care for those with dementia type illnesses.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
