Self Funders (Private Payers): Negotiation Service
The majority of private payers accept the first quote for a care home placement without question despite it being one of the biggest expenses in their life time. However consider this, at £500 per week, the average length of stay in a residential home totals £60,000, if Valuing Care helps you achieve a 10% reduction (£50 per week), it saves £6,000 over the duration of the stay. contact us to see if we can help you!
Our fee is £550 (Plus VAT) and includes:
- Independant Social Worker commences a search of placements using the CQC website and identifies a minimum of 3 homes with current vacancies
- Provides you with a “checklist” of care home requirements to support you through the selection process
- Once you have identified the placement of choice, coaches you through the fee negotiation approach
- Reviews the contract from a Social Worker perspective: This is not a legal review it is a social work observation and summary of the items that may require further clarification
If you’ve already found a suitable care home, and are concerned the quote from the home is too high (remember you can double check using our FREE calculator ) , and let Valuing Care coach you through the negotiation to try and secure a saving.
