Kingsley Nursing Home charges £681.38 per week for a standard room and £697.37
per week for a room with en suite facilities. Fees are payable every 4 weeks in advance.

Funding for care can be a complex issue and the following information should be looked upon as a guide to what to expect. Essentially two things will be assessed, your finances and your level of need for care.

Financial Assessment
Your local council will carry out a financial assessment before deciding whether they, or you, should pay all or part of the costs of your care.

The level of funding is determined by how much savings and property (known as capital) you have and your income (for example, pensions or state benefits).

If you have less than £14,250 in capital, it will not be taken into account. However, you may still have to pay something towards your care if you have other income (for example, pensions or state benefits).

If you have between £14,250 and £23,250 in capital, you will have to pay some of the costs of your care.

If you have more than £23,250 in capital, you will have to pay all costs for your care until the value falls below £23,250.

Needs Assessment
All residents with nursing needs should get help towards their fees from the NHS. There is a single level of funding contribution of £156.25 per week.

If you have more complex health needs, you may be eligible for what is known as “continuing NHS healthcare” which is free of charge to you.

Matron will be happy to explain these processes further to clarify a rather complex area.
