Moving into a Parish Home
There are many ways to move into a Parish Home. If you or a family member wishes to become a resident of one of our fantastic Homes you can contact the Home directly, using the contact information provided on the Homes Information page. Alternatively, you can be referred to one of the Homes; these referrals can be given by doctors, social workers, the hospital or family members.
It is important to us that you feel completely happy with your choice of Home, and therefore the manager of the residential home you choose will be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have. The manager will also be able to organise as many visits to the Home as required. Both Homes offer all residents a one month trial period to ensure that they feel safe and happy in their new surroundings. This also gives them peace of mind that they can change their mind if they decide that the Home isn't suitable for them. If the resident does decide that the Home isn't suitable they will be given help choosing an alternative.
In each Home it is the Home Manager who has overall responsibility for the residents, the staff and the Home's general running. All of our staff teams are made up of qualified health care professionals and care assistants.
The cost of staying in the Homes varies, dependent on which Home is chosen. Funding can be arranged if finances are below a certain level; if they are above this level then the full amount will be expected.
If you have any queries regarding financial matters please do not hesitate to contact our Homes Liaison Officer, Julie Garrod, who can help you. Julie can also answer any queries with regard to moving into a care home and is able arrange visits without obligation.
