How do you find a care home for me?

How do you find a care home for me?

Once the funding criteria is confirmed as being satisfied, the social care practitioner and the Brokerage Service will source a care home on your behalf and provide you with the available options.  Our finance team will use the financial assessment form previously completed to calculate your contribution towards these fees.

If we are paying some or all of the cost of your care, we will find at least one home that can meet your care needs.

We will contact all relevant care homes and share with you all who replied confirming they are able to meet your care needs. In certain cases, only one care home may be available.

We will establish a budget for your care home placement based on your care needs and the care home(s) able to meet those needs. This is known as your personal budget.

Once the council has contracted with the care home, we will usually pay them the full cost of the agreed care and support fee. We will then send you an invoice (four weekly) for your contribution towards the cost, and invoices for any top up amounts if applicable. The Council’s preference is that contribution(s) are collected by Direct Debit.

What if I wish to choose an alternative care home?

We will support placements in care homes as long as:

  • they can meet your eligible care needs and must have an assessed need for 24 hour care.
  • meet the required quality and regulatory standards
  • the care home is willing to enter into a contract with us
  • would not cost more your personal budget
