Advice and Guidance for Selecting a Care Home in Rotherham
Choosing the right care home suited to your needs is a highly important decision that will help you get the most out of your later life. There are several factors that need to be taken into account, each with the potential to affect your decision. One of the most important steps to take is to arrange a needs assessment, which will help you get a better understanding of what type of care homes may be best suited to you.

The location of the home is also an important consideration, as a close proximity to friends and family may facilitate frequent visits and support. Ratings from third parties such as the Care Quality Commission (CQC) should also be taken into account, as they may provide better insight into the home’s care and standards. The CQC report for Whiston Hall can be viewed below, and our welcoming managers and staff are always available to show you around our home.Call us on 01246 414618 to schedule a visit to Brookview.

Paying for Care

Your local social service department can carry out an assessment of your financial and physical needs. This will help you determine how much you will need to contribute financially and how much the NHS can cover. A professional financial advisor can help you better understand the multiple care funding options that are available to you and decide which ones are best. See for additional care fee information.

State or Local Authority Funding
If your local Council has assessed that your needs require you to find a care home, and if your capital is below £23,250, you may be entitled to receive some financial support from your local authority. If your capital is below £14,250, you will be eligible for maximum financial support, but will still be required to pay a small monthly amount towards your care.Call us on 01246 414618 to schedule a visit to Brookview.

If your capital is above £23,250, and if your needs do not require any specialised or extensive care, you may need to fund your stay at a care home yourself. However, you may still be able to gain some forms of financial assistance if necessary. If your capital were to reduce to below £23,250, you may be able to seek assistance from your local authority. Please visit if you require additional information about care fees.
