What does it cost?
James Hirons is committed to providing value for money and the Trustees run the Home on a not-for-profit basis. The fees vary according to room allocation and the level of care required. Our rates are available upon request from the Manager’s office, and these are reviewed annually or more frequently if the resident’s dependency increases.
The Manager is always available as a first port of call for advice and any resident requiring help with financial matters can be referred to an advocacy service for confidential and impartial advice. Privately funded residents whose funds become depleted may apply to the Trustees for financial support. Each case will receive sympathetic consideration. Our high standards of care and services are available to residents on a privately funded basis.
