Funding Care

Home Care Preferred St. Alban’s believes in being transparent about our charges and we make sure there are no unexpected surprises. Once we have carried out an assessment we provide details of the support package we feel most suitable along with all cost details. Our packages are flexible and can be changed to suit the needs of the individual.

 

All clients have different financial circumstances and often there is benefit in seeking independent advice on how to fund long term care. Home Care Preferred St. Albans are happy to advise on whether a client may be entitled to benefits, however we are not licensed to offer broader financial advice.

 

We can recommend organisations that are regulated and qualified to offer specialist financial advice. During our years in the care profession we have worked frequently with Eldercare Solutions Ltd.

 

Their advisers hold the CF8 Long Term Care Qualification and are separately accredited as experienced Later Life Advisers by the government’s Financial Services Skills Council.

 

They will discuss your situation with you and aim to help you make an informed decision about how to make the best of your finances.

 

Home Care Preferred St. Alban’s receives no financial incentive by referring clients to Eldercare Solutions Ltd.  For more information, click here.

They stick to the routine and my nana is happy as can be. They are consistent, on time, work well together and so very helpful and positive. So grateful and happy.”

By the intelligent and well informed standards of care. The willingness and ability to help in any way needed or requested.

P.B

“My parents are really delighted with the care and assistance that the carer provides to them. He always arrives promptly and my dad who is 91 is so grateful for help washing and dressing, it makes him much less tired and able to cope and enjoy his day. The carer is very kind, patient and aware of both my parent’s physical capacities. He is also excellent company and is just a pleasure. The carer organises my father’s medication, gives it to him, puts in his hearing aids, helps wash and dress him and gives him breakfast, He recognises my father’s need for engagement and they have good chats. I feel my parents are in the best and safest hands and that is all you can ask for.”
