• What are the fees?

    £705 per week nursing care and £726 per week nursing care with ensuite facility.

    £705 for residential care.

    How will my care be funded?

    Should your savings amount to more than £23,250 you are likely to be required to fund your own care. If this is the case you will still be entitled to receive ‘Nursing Care Allowance’ of £100 per week and also ‘Attendance Allowance’, as well as all your pensions and incomes.

    If you have less than £23,250 the Healthcare Trust will contribute towards most of the cost of your care. Current Trust funding however does not meet the full cost of care at Hamilton Home. This differential is commonly referred to as a third party contribution. This rate is currently £57 or £78 for an ensuite. Fees are reviewed on an annual basis and are subject to change.

    How will I be billed?

    Invoices are processed at the end of each month and are paid in arrears.

    What are the procedures for admission?

    We will visit each prospective resident to introduce ourselves and tell you about our home. We will do a nursing assessment to help us prepare for your admission.

    What are the visiting times?

    We want you to feel welcome and that the home is your own so you can visit at any time.

    Is Day Care available?

    At present we are not registered with Regulation Quality Inspection Authority to provide day care.

    What meals are there available and can you cater for my specific dietry requirements?

    We provide traditional home cooked food using seasonal and locally sourced produce wherever possible. The menu is planned with input from the residents and their relatives and we can provide alternatives for those on special diets.

    Is a full laundry service available?

    Yes.

    Do my clothes need to be labelled?

    Yes all clothes need to be labelled prior to admission.

    Are pets allowed?

    Unfortunately no, but they are very welcome to visit. We have a nursing home dog called Elmo.

    What if I have a complaint?

    We take all complaints seriously. Hamilton Home has a formal complaints procedure which is explained fully on admission.
