Admission and Fees

Admission

Whilst we have a waiting list for those wishing to be admitted to the centre and we will contact each individual in turn in order to offer a place. Each individual can make enquiries personally or through their Care Manager/Social Worker who will also assist in making the arrangements. If you wish to discuss the admission process please contact us to discuss your individual situation and advise you of the most suitable action to take prior to admission.

Totally Trust Funded

If you are totally Trust Funded you will be in receipt of some benefits, most of these benefits will be taken to assist with the payment of your fees except for £25.27 which is called Personal Allowance and is money the Government states is to meet your personal needs whilst in a care home.

The rest of your benefits will be calculated and used to pay some of the fees. The trust will make up the difference to £672 per week. You will notice that there is a shortfall of £50 per week from what the trust will pay and our fee at Cornfield. This shortfall has occurred due to the Government failing to meet the fair price for care as reported by Pricewaterhouse Coopers in a report dated 2004.

Part funded works the same as trust funded, the difference being that  for every £250.00 savings over £14,250.00 you will pay £1.00;  this is called "tariff from savings" If a resident has £15,250 which is £1,000 over the allowed £14,250 therefore the "tariff from savings" will be £4.00

Privately Funded

If you have savings over £23,250 then you will be Privately Funded, i.e. this means that you will pay the full cost £722.00 per week, (this includes Cornfield Care Centre third party charge of £50.00  per week) however the government will pay £100 per week towards your costs, which will reduce your payment to £622 per week. As a privately funded person you are entitled to claim attendance allowance as well as your pension.
