At brighterkind we are now publishing indicative prices for our homes as well as more information on what is and what isn’t included in the fees. Please be aware that the indicative fees set out are estimates (based on standard minimum prices effective from April 2018) and for general guidance and assistance for self-funded residents only.
We don't charge administration fees, but we do charge a refundable deposit of one week's fees for people paying for their own care, to cover any owed sums to us from time to time.
You may be entitled to support with the Care Home fees. Please visit our fees and funding page for an outline of the government rules surrounding funding assistance. We do recommend you seek confidential and independent, professional advice.
Your weekly fee includes:
- Care and support services which reflect your requirements.
