At St John’s Moorside, our aim is to deliver quality care at a value you can afford. However, we do understand that circumstances can change.
If your savings fall below the upper limits set out by the government, you are likely able to qualify for financial assistance. In this case you should contact your local social service department when your savings are approaching this limit, so they will know when they need to help and will be able to support you further.
Our door is always open, so if you have any queries or questions, pop in to speak to the Matron and her team.
Some people with long-term, complex health needs qualify for free social care arranged and funded solely by the NHS. This is known as ‘NHS continuing healthcare’.
NHS continuing healthcare can be provided in a variety of settings outside hospital, such as in your own home or in a care home like Moorside.
You can find out more about CHC here.
NHS-Funded Nursing Care is when the NHS pays for the nursing care part of a home’s fees. The NHS pays a flat rate directly to the care home towards the cost of this nursing care. You can read more information about FNC here.
Rates at Moorside vary depending on the room type available at the time, as well as the care requirements of each individual resident.
We strive to deliver quality care at a value you can afford.
For more information on our care charges, please contact the home directly on 01962 854548 to discuss your individual circumstances.
Medical provisions (other than medication by prescription), chiropody, hairdressing, newspapers, clothing, toiletries, day trips, and the cost of any other luxury or personal items are not included in the cost of care at St John’s Moorside.
As a potential new resident, your completed application form sets out both your care needs and your financial position. Once we have reviewed your application form, we will conduct a care and financial assessment based on your responses.
The Home Manager will then arrange to visit you at home or in hospital. The purpose of this visit is to make sure that Moorside can meet your individual needs, answer any queries you may have, and to get ready for your arrival.
If the Home Manager feels that the Moorside will not be able to provide the right care for you, we will advise you of this.
If you are eligible for funding by the local authority, your first point of contact will be Adult Services at Hampshire County Council (visit the council’s website here). A social worker will guide you through the admission process.
The admissions process is slightly different depending on if you are eligible for funding by the local authority, or if you are a privately funding resident.
For privately funded residents: please fill out an application form by downloading it here or by contacting the Moorside team directly for an informal chat with the home’s Matron, Deborah Macartney.
If the home meets your needs, we will invite you to come and view the accommodation on offer. If we have a suitable room available, arrangements will be made for your admission to Moorside.
