Your Future Matters
Paying for care
At the Future Care Group we understand that there are many things to consider when making a decision to move yourself or a family member into a care home. One of the biggest considerations is how to pay for care.
As a Group we are open and transparent with our discussions around the cost of care. We are making every effort to make sure that financial issues are planned ahead.
The following points will help you understand the costs involved when moving into a care home and your options for paying your care fees.
However we are not permitted to give you direct financial advice and therefore we have also provided a list of organisations that offer financial advice.
Find out more about our UK care home fees and funding advice in our Paying for Care advice hub.
Our full Terms and Conditions are clearly detailed in our contracts which will be given to you before you move in to your new home. This includes review of care fees and advice on personal content insurance.
At the Future Care Group, we never discriminate against people living with dementia, but we do recognise the unique care needs and offer specialist support for the person and their family at our individual care homes.
There are currently 750,000 people living with dementia in the UK and by 2025 this is expected to rise to over one million. A third of all people living with dementia live in care homes and it is reported that 1 in 3 people who live in non-specialist homes have dementia or undiagnosed symptoms.
Dementia is an incurable condition caused by disease of the brain which over time seriously impairs a person’s ability to live independently. Symptoms include severe memory loss, mood fluctuations and personality changes; which can present with serious confusion, agitation or aggression and physical changes including poor mobility, weight loss and sleep deprivation.
Future Care Group provides expert dementia care services in our care homes across South East England. Find out more by visiting our Dementia Advice hub.
We hope this overview is helpful to you and we can also signpost you to other organisations if you require further assistance.
