Paying For Care
B&M Care offers real value for money with a number of carefully considered care packages that each benefit from a bespoke care plan to suit individual needs – but we fully understand that the complexity of paying for care can often be both confusing and overwhelming.
To support prospective residents and their families to better evaluate the affordability of the levels of care B&M Care can provide, each of our homes offers peace of mind with a level of expertise that can answer most care fees planning questions. Furthermore, B&M Care works alongside such affiliates as Eldercare Solutions and Symponia to offer individuals impartial advice about the financial products currently available to assist with the funding of care, for example lifetime annuity plans.
Each B&M Care Home will quote fees on a weekly basis, unless respite, short-stay or convalescence care is required. All of our fees are inclusive of dining, engagement & wellbeing, and laundry – there no hidden charges.
Each B&M Care Home will provide a written contract along with a written statement of our terms and conditions which will cover the following areas:
- The fee and what it covers
- What services (if any) are chargeable
- The amount of deposit required
- The amount of notice required before leaving
- Any charges made after the resident’s death
B&M Care does expect confirmation that fees can be met before admission into a home is allowed. Evidence to pay privately for at least 3-4 years will also be required.
Choosing a care home for a loved one is not only a significant decision, but one that can often be difficult to navigate. Understanding how care is funded can be complex; but here at B&M Care, we want you to feel confident about your choices.
As an additional resource, Adult Care Services and Age UK have published factsheet guides that provide financial information support and further guidance around the affordability of care.
B&M Care recommends that you seek the advice of an independent financial advisor who can talk through all of your options.
