We will always try to make our residents aware of any source of funding that is available to them to reduce the cost of moving into Turfcote.
In general we expect anyone considering moving into a care home to be in receipt of the following:
- A state or private pension of at least £142.00 a week (if it is less than this, the government should top it up with the addition of a pension credit.)
- Attendance allowance (this amount varies but is normally at least £79.00)
- Winter Fuel Allowance
Beyond this income is subject to an individual’s circumstances.
