Admission & Fees

Residents and their family are invited to view the home; an initial assessment is done with a follow up full assessment in the Residents home. If I feel that the home can meet the needs of the Resident, then a day is arranged for them to come along and spend some time with us. A 4-6 week trial period is arranged where either party can terminate at any time.
Permanent residents will be asked to sign a contract detailing the terms and conditions of the home, payment by cheque or standing order in advance (calendar month).

Respite residents will also be asked to sign a contract, and provide 1 weeks payment to secure the room.
