Funding your care depends on your personal circumstances and the type of care you are hoping to receive. A new funding scheme for elderly care will come into effect in 2017 but until then different systems are in place for care in a nursing home or facility, or for domiciliary care in your own home.
Care at a Shaw Healthcare facility is not limited to elderly care or dementia care, though of course we have a great selection of care homes and nursing homes providing excellent services for the elderly!
At Shaw Healthcare we have been providing dedicated dementia care since 1986, and our philosophy of care offers personalised support for individuals with dementia in a variety of settings, from home care to 24-hour services in a residential care home.
