Yes, subject to appropriate support and your level of need we can make arrangements for days out too and sometimes for short breaks and long weekends as well.

What does it cost to live at Lightmoor View?

The fees charged depends on your needs, accommodation and support and the type of care you’re looking for. Together we will discuss and assess your requirements and the home manager will give you an inclusive cost for your care and accommodation. Any additional charges and also deposit will be discussed and are explained in our contract and other documents which you will need to sign on admission. You may also be eligible for funding from the local authority or the NHS dependent on your care needs and your funding position.

Where can I find funding advice?

We know how complex the means-tested funding position in terms of UK social care is.

If you have assets, assessed by social services above £23,250 in England then it is likely that you will need to fund all of the accommodation care and support costs under current UK legislation. We will be clear on what our fees are on admission.

If you have assets below £23,250 then the Local Authority may fund part or potentially all of your accommodation care and support. Prior to admission we will need to be advised of the fee to determine whether or not the Local Authority contribution is adequate enough to cover the full fees. We appreciate this is sensitive and we talk to you and social services colleagues prior to admission.

It is important to understand each person is different in terms of both their needs and funding position. Whilst we cannot give funding advice we will be clear on your fees and charges. You can also find a wealth of information via Age UK or Age Concern https://www.ageuk.org.uk/

Where can I find more information on dementia?

Dementia affects everyone differently and we can talk to you directly about issues or concerns you might be facing. Alternatively, the Alzheimer’s Society has a wealth of information available on its website https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/
