Services For Care Homes: Supporting Your Care Home And Your Residents
As a care home owner or manager, you may see continuing care as a confusing and time-consuming burden for you and your staff. You may also feel that, if residents qualify for NHS funding, your business will suffer because self-funders often pay more than you will receive for state-funded residents.
Cheselden Is Here To:
- Provide clarity around continuing care for you and your staff
- Help protect your business from any financial loss which results from successful funding claims, so you feel comfortable with referring continuing care cases to us
- Offer best advice to your residents about their funding options, whether or not they qualify for continuing care
- Relieve your staff of the administrative workload involved in processing fee claims.
Why Choose Cheselden?
As the market-leading independent continuing healthcare review specialist, we have excellent relationships with many care home and nursing home operators across England. Our skilled and professional team has many years' experience and we are committed to giving you and your patients a high quality service and expert clinical advice.
If we handle a successful care fees funding claim which results in a fees shortfall for your business, we may be able to underwrite this so you receive the same level of income as before. We will also guarantee to the patient and their relatives that they can stay in your care home if they choose, giving them valuable peace of mind and helping you retain your residents.
How We Work
When you refer a patient to us, our qualified clinical advisors will formally assess their healthcare needs and eligibility for continuing care. If we believe they qualify for NHS funding, we will then handle the claims process from start to finish. We will deal with all the administrative tasks such as obtaining medical records and liaising with PCTs, so this burden does not fall on your staff.
If we find that your resident is not eligible for continuing care funding, we will still offer them expert advice on their funding options and help them make the right choices for paying their care home fees.
