Our Person Centred Care approach is supported by an affordable and flexible fee structure
At Signature, we understand that every individual is unique and there is no “one-size-fits-all” care plan.
Everyone who comes to live in a Signature home has a detailed health and wellbeing assessment plus a care evaluation prior to moving in, during which time their particular needs and preferences are discussed.
Together with family members, we create a bespoke care plan – tailor-made to suit all personal and specific care requirements and support levels. The cost of the suggested care plan is detailed and agreed prior to moving in.
Our Care Team regularly review these care and support needs and when agreed with the resident and their families, makes any necessary changes. This practice of continual evaluation allows us to offer residents the most appropriate amount of care as and when they need it.
We develop tailor-made care plans to suit individual needs, offering real value for money
Whether you are looking for a care home for yourself or one with your partner – or indeed for another family member – the issue of cost is bound to be both complex and high on the agenda.
Our unique homes and carefully considered care packages allow us to cater for residents with various emotional and physical needs. A number of our residents simply wish to enjoy the benefits of community living, whilst others require more focused care or regular nursing support. When considered with the variety of suites available at each home, including studios, one-bedroom, deluxe and two-bedroom apartments, this allows for total packages to be developed that can adapt to your individual budget.
We believe Signature is surprisingly affordable for the standard of accommodation and services provided, and welcome the opportunity to discuss how it works.
We also appreciate the importance of understanding and evaluating the true cost of care, and we encourage all residents and their families to seek appropriate support and advice.
Help and advice
In order to help prospective residents and their families evaluate the affordability of various care options, Signature works with a specialist team of highly experienced Independent Financial Advisors, all who are members of SOLLA and thus have specific knowledge and expertise in the care fees marketplace.
