Financial Information

Your care package cost

Everyone's needs are different so your care requirements will be assessed specifically for you as an individual as will your own personal preferences. In this way we'll be able to provide everything you need and want in your life at Cavendish.

Because of this we are unable to tell you exactly how much your care will cost until we have met you and had time to fully assess your requirements.

For a confidential discussion about your requirements or to arrange a visit to Cavendish Care Home to take a look around please don't hesitate to contact us on 01452 521896 or feel free to drop in anytime.

How will you be funded?

Private Funding

If you will be funding the cost of care yourself we will provide you with a fully costed care package based on your care assessment and your personal preferences as described above. The private fees include most toiletries, hairdressing if required, chiropody and daily newspapers.

Our terms are that the fees are payable monthly in advance and are non-refundable. Terms and conditions of care are regulated by a standard contract, a copy of which is available on request.

If you are unsure if you will be required to pay the cost of care yourselves we recommend contacting your solicitor or download our free guide to care funding below.
