FAQs

Before your admission to Elliott House a member of our Assessment Team will visit you in your own home, hospital, or in another home, and undertake a comprehensive assessment of your care needs. The carer will assess your personal and social needs as well as your caring needs and will encourage your involvement in the procedure if possible. Your relatives can be involved if you wish and the carer will seek input from your social worker or hospital staff if relevant. Our carer will only arrange your admission if they are certain that Elliott House can meet your care needs.

If you have capital which totals less than £23,250 you are eligible for Local Authority financial support. This means that, if you meet the Local Authority’s criteria for residential care, their finance department will pay a contribution towards the cost of your care at Elliott House. The rest of the fee will be paid by you from the benefits you receive from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), formerly known as the Department of Social Security (DSS). You will still receive a personal allowance from the DWP to spend how you wish. If your capital totals in excess of £23,250 you are not eligible to receive financial support from the Local Authority and your care will be ‘self funded’. This means that, until your capital level drops to £23,250, you will pay for your own care from your own funds.

We do not like to consider the possibility of being incapable of managing our affairs; still less actually making plans for such an eventuality. Yet putting an Enduring Power of Attorney in place before an emergency arises will save heartache, money and assure peace of mind for all. It is important that an Enduring Power of Attorney specific to your needs be arranged, again with an eye on long term care. An Enduring Power of Attorney will enable a relative or close friend to act on your behalf in the event that you lose the ability to carry out essential functions, whether through mental or extreme physical disability. This can range from writing cheques to selling properties. You can have more than one Attorney, either acting together or independently. An Enduring Power of Attorney should not be confused with a Power of Attorney, which will cease at the onset of mental disability

When considering long term care, individuals and their families often ask us if it is possible to gift or transfer assets before care is needed, in order to avoid having to use these assets in meeting care costs. The legal position is that Social Services Departments have the right to make detailed enquiries into the background of any individual applying to them for financial support. If they discover that assets have been gifted or transferred for the purpose of claiming benefits this may have serious implications. You should be aware that the right of Local Authorities to investigate your gifting of assets is not restricted by time; they can investigate as far back as they deem necessary to ensure that you have not deprived yourself of assets. Consequently individuals who effect such transfers can have absolutely NO GUARANTEE that they will avoid care costs in this way. “Think carefully before giving away your assets”. Indeed as the financial constraints on Local Authorities become greater in the face of an ever increasing demand,
