Paying for care

We offer a number of ways of paying for care and work closely with our clients to find options that best suit individual circumstances and personal finances. Many individuals fear that they will not be able to afford care in the home, and whilst funding sources for such care packages can be confusing, Village Care Ltd can be a cost effective alternative to nursing or residential home admission.

Its important to remember that all charges are based upon the specific individual care requirements, so the earlier you contact us to make an assessment of those needs, the faster we will be able to provide you with a clear indication of the costs of the care package. Regardless of whether your care package is Government funded, privately funded or a combination of the two, Village Care Ltd aim to provide the very best in professional care, and deliver it with understanding and sensitivity.

Government Funding

It may be that a client qualifies for full or part-funding of care through their local authority or NHS Trust or other bodies. If a client qualifies for funding they can control the funding by receiving ‘direct payments’. These payments are designed to support you to remain living at home, encouraging independence and social inclusion.

Direct payments are ‘means tested’ cash payments made to individuals assessed as needing support in place of social services provision. Local Authorities have a duty to make direct payments to people who can consent to use them. Direct payment is usually considered as a first option for everyone, at each assessment and review.

Further information via the NHS on such funding can be found here.
