We also plan days out with our residents, such as exploring the local area or a trip to the theatre.

Do we take social services fee?

Sadly our model cannot be sustained on local authority/social services fees.  We can however accept them as part funders, with a top-up from the family to make up to the value of our fee.

Do we have our own private GP?

Every resident is entitled to be registered with a local GP surgery as part of the NHS service.  If a resident wishes to keep their own GP, this will be down to the GP himself/herself.  It is difficult to retain a GP if you move out of their area.

Do we do respite care?

Yes, we do with a minimum stay of four weeks but the Home Manager has discretion in this regard.
