Getting Admitted to our home
This page provides future residents and their families with essential information and valuable advice so that the new resident can settle into our home as smoothly as possible, making a sometimes difficult process easier for all concerned.
Seaton Hall is registered to house, accommodate and care for up to Twenty Nine (29) Older Long Stay, Older High Dependency Long Stay, Older Short Stay, as well as residents requiring a Temporary or Respite Care visit.
Every resident is 65 or over, is prepared to undergo an assessment of their needs and is required to provide the following information on, or prior to admission: -
Residents Name, Date of Birth and Age, Next of Kin, Medical Background, prescriptive medication, Social Worker and details of Funeral Directors and requirements at time of death.
Other paperwork for completion on the day of admittance would be: - Dietary Needs, Care Plan, Inventory Sheet for Personal Belongings, Daily Report Sheet, a Personal Expenditure Sheet if you prefer for us to adminster safe keeping of your pocket money and a Medication Administration Record Sheet.
Paying for Care
Paying for care is based on individual circumstances. We believe that everyone has the right to a high standard of care, and some people are able to receive contributions from their local authority.
In summary, a local authority will contribute to the cost of care if an individual’s assets (their savings and the value of their home) amount to less than £23,000. There is a sliding scale of Local Authority contribution below this threshold.
