The above rates took effect from 1st July 2017. Charges are reviewed each year in July, in line with standard procedures in the care sector.

Southfield House does not enter into pre-placement contracts with social services and therefore all residents’ care must be supported from their own means. In exceptional circumstances, for residents who have resided with us for a considerable period of time who may find themselves in financial difficulty, consideration would be given to ’spot’ contractual funding from the social services. For any contractual involvement with social services there will be a one-off ‘set-up’ fee of £250 and an annual administration fee of £150, to cover our costs.

An extra charge of £ 250 will be levied for Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards authorization, should this be required. This will be renewed annually at £ 125 p.a.
