Financial FAQs

We appreciate that you would most likely like a numerical figure to answer to the question. Unfortunately, it is very hard to answer this question as the cost of care can vary a great deal and depending on several factors such as the location of the home and the type of care required (residential or nursing). I would recommend that you call your nearest home and they will be able to give you a much clearer idea after short conversation with you.

If you require funding or are entitled to financial support to pay for care, then the first step for you would be to contact your local authority. They will carry out an assessment and create a report which will detail exactly what support is required and what type of care would be most suitable. At this point, we can then liaise with the Local Authority and arrange funding.

We accept funding from those paying for their own care (self-funding residents) and residents who are publicly funded by the Local Authority or NHS.

There is no need to worry. If you are funding your own care and your capital is falling towards the upper capital limit, then be sure to speak with us and we will support you through the process. Together, we can speak to the Local Authority to arrange a financial assessment as you may be eligible for funding.

Lifestyle FAQs

Visitors are welcome at any time during the day. Residents can see their guests in their rooms or make use of any one of the communal lounges and cafes. We also welcome family to stay for a meal and eat with their loved one and encourage family and friends to take residents out when they can.

Yes! Once a resident comes to our home, it becomes their home. And naturally, they are involved in the running of the home. All our homes have regular resident meetings where they can express their opinions and contribute to life in their home. Some of our residents choose to get involved with the day-to-day operations by hosting social clubs, helping to set tables and even interview new staff.

Of course! We truly want our home to become your home and therefore encourage all our residents to bring their own furniture and decoration to make themselves feel as comfortable and happy as possible.

Most of our homes are able to accommodate small domestic pets but this not always true. Most pets are welcome to visit for the day by arrangement with the Home Manager. Please contact your nearest care home for more information.

All our homes employ a Head Chef and nutrition team who are passionate and experienced in delivering a quality catering experience. The catering team liaise with the residents through group meetings and 1-1 discussions to create a menu that meets their dietary requirements and preferences using fresh seasonal produce. There are always at least 3 meals a day with snacks and drinks always available.

All our homes have dedicated activities and lifestyle team who get to know our residents and their interests. They then create a varied activity and entertainment plan based on the interests, preferences and needs of the residents.

For example, most of our homes have social clubs such as gardening or cooking clubs. The team also arrange daily activities and games such as sit-down yoga or beauty pampering days to help improve physical, social and cognitive health. We also organise outings as per the wishes of our residents.

Care FAQs

At Pressbeau, we provide Residential, Nursing and Dementia Care. Some of our homes specialise in particular care types, while others offer a care pathway – where a range of care types can be provided within one site. All of our care homes display the Care Types they provide on their webpages, to help you understand the care on offer.

Respite care can be anywhere from a couple of weeks to a couple months depending on the requirements of the individual. Our respite care is available all year and is perfect for anybody who requires post-operative rehabilitation or for a carer to have a holiday.

We recognise that everyone is unique and therefore their needs vary. We regularly assess each individual to determine how much support and care is required within the home. This assessment considers physical, emotional and social aspects.
