This type of funding is available for people who have registered Nursing needs and are receiving their care in a care home with Nursing. Please note however, that being a resident in a care home with Nursing does not automatically indicate eligibility for Funded Nursing Care.
If you are eligible for Funded Nursing Care, it will be paid to the care home directly to fund your care. This means care provided, supervised, or planned by, registered Nurses that are employed by the care home. If you are self-funding your care at the Nursing home, these funds should be reflected in your care home fees. Please talk to the manager of the home to discuss how Funded Nursing Care affects your fees. If your placement is funded by social services, the Funded Nursing Care payment forms part of the fees paid to the care home and does not affect or change any contribution from your pension or third party top up fees.
If you are not yet a nursing home resident but wish to move to one once you have been awarded Continuing Healthcare or Funded Nursing Care, the All Age Continuing Care team will help you and your family to find a nursing home that can meet your needs.
