Admissions and Fees - Care Homes for Older People

Home Sweet Home signWe take Social Work funded residents at the nationally agreed nursing home fee level as well as private residents. All receive the same standard of care, facilities and service.

Privately funded places

Residents who pay their own fees can apply to Social Work for a free personal care allowance. If a resident opts not to apply for this funding, they can move into a care home but will be responsible for all costs.

Advice on Free Personal Care for the Elderly can be given your local authority's Social Care Direct service. 

Our financial year operates from 1 April to 31 March and fees are reviewed annually. All fees are payable a month in advance.

Current private fees

For the financial year from 1 April 2017 - 31 March 2018 the private fees for our care homes are:

  • Braeside House, Edinburgh - £1,200 a week
  • Jenny's Well, Paisley - £990 a week  

Social work funded places

Fees paid by local authorities must be at the nursing care rate and not the residential rate. At present, we do not charge top up fees where there is local authority funding.

To apply for local authority funding for a nursing care place, an application needs to be made to Social Work which will be put to a panel for a decision.

Find out more about funding places in a care home on the Care Information Scotland website.
