Introduction This Directory is produced by Kent County Council. It provides information, advice and guidance about available support and care services for adults in Kent, and what should be considered before making any long-term care decisions. There are many options available and it is important to consider all the options, particularly as the majority of people pay for, or towards, the cost of their care. For many people, continuing to live in their own home is the best option – physically, emotionally and financially. Services available to support this could be: Equipment or adaptations: such as grab rails near steps, in the bathroom or an extra stair rail, emergency pendants to call someone if a person has a fall, gas/ smoke alarms and sensors can alert someone if they are wandering. Enablement services: these support someone to learn or re-learn daily living skills and this helps them regain independence following a change in circumstances, such as an illness, fall or operation. Support in the home: this can be by a trained worker, family member or friend who can help

someone wash safely, get dressed, prepare a meal/eat or help with other household tasks. Community based support: such as activities in the day or befriending to reduce the risk of loneliness and isolation. If a move to a different type of housing is the only suitable option there is a range of accommodation available including Extra Care housing, supported accommodation, residential or nursing homes. Whatever choice a person makes, it is essential that it’s an informed choice and all options have been explored. If you require long-term care and pay for it yourself it is essential you seek professional financial advice before making such an important decision. There is lots of information available online (search ‘paying for care’) and various charity organisations can give information. If you have not had any help from Kent County Council and think you might need some additional support you can contact us on the number provided in this Directory or you can visit a Gateway for more advice.

Passionate about the care we provide.


Community care services Assessment and eligibility Kent County Council’s Families and Social Care (adults) department is responsible for providing support to people over the age of 18 who are in need of community care services. These include services for: • older people • people with physical disabilities • people with sensory disabilities • people with learning disabilities • people over 65 years with mental health issues • people who provide unpaid care to friends or family • people supported by Families and Social Care (children’s) who are approaching 18 years and may require support from Families and Social Care (adults). To find out if you are eligible for community care services you will need an assessment. Anyone can ask for a Community Care Assessment and there is no charge for this service. You can contact Kent County Council yourself or someone may do this on your behalf. This can be done by email, phone, letter or by visiting a Gateway centre. Not everyone who asks us about care will be eligible for community care support but whatever your individual needs we would like to ensure you have the information you need to help you stay active and independent in your own home for as long as possible. If you think you may need support from us you can contact us for more information: Online: www.kent.gov.uk/adultsocialservices Email: contact.assessment.service@kent.gov.uk Telephone: 0300 333 5433 In person: at a Gateway or through your local social services office. If the information you provide suggests you will not be eligible for community care support we will try to assist you by providing information, advice and guidance.

You can also look on the internet for information. If you do not have access to a computer you can use one free of charge at libraries and Gateways.. If the information you provide shows us that you might need community care services two assessments are carried out. The first, a Community Care Assessment, works out what support you need. The second assessment looks at your financial circumstances and works out how much you will be expected to pay towards the support you receive. If you have capital assets such as property, investments or savings, worth more than £23,250, you must pay all the cost yourself. However, you may be able to claim some state benefits. For more advice about paying for support, please see page 59. Someone from Families and Social Care (adults) will contact you and ask you some questions. Sometimes they will offer you information, advice and guidance because you do not appear to need community care services. If you are in hospital someone will visit and complete an assessment with you before you are discharged. Social care staff carry out most of our assessments. If you need both health and adult social care services, you will be asked to agree that we can share assessment information with the NHS. This helps us make sure that different types of support can better meet your needs. Throughout your assessment, you can always have your carer, a relative, or a friend, with you for support. All the information you give during an assessment, and afterwards, will be secure and will remain confidential. You can find more information about having access to your personal records in a separate publication, ‘Looking After Your Personal Information’. Please visit the website for more details. Support to help you stay in your own home We recognise that people want to stay as independent as possible and in their own homes so many of our services have been developed with this in mind.

Enablement Enablement is intensive short-term support that may last up to 3 weeks but could be extended for a limited period if necessary. Enablement supports and encourages you to lead an independent and

10

fulfilling life, in the way that you choose. We will work with you so that you learn, or re-learn, important skills you need for everyday life. For example, we could help you regain your confidence following a

www.kent.gov.uk/adultsocialservices

0300 333 5433


Enablement continued fall, or provide support that enables you to prepare a meal if there has been a change in circumstances that means you need to cook. Through Enablement we may also identify pieces of equipment that could support you to regain or maintain your

independence for as long as you can. Enablement is not about doing things for you – it’s about giving you the skills and confidence to do things for yourself. It can also mean that you do not start to depend on support that could cost you money.

Home equipment and adaptations If you have difficulty moving and getting about and you are eligible to receive support from us, you can obtain equipment and/or minor adaptations (for example, stair rails) to help you stay safe and independent, and improve your quality of life. Specialist equipment is also available for people who are deaf or have problems with their sight. Purchasing your own equipment You can also choose to buy equipment yourself if you wish to do so. Many items can be purchased from high street stores and mail order catalogues

via the telephone or internet. Alternatively, you may choose to receive a direct payment which you can use towards purchasing the equipment you require, as long as it meets your community care eligible needs. Major adaptations If you need major adaptation works (such as a stair lift) and you have a low income, you may qualify for funding from your local district or borough council. This funding is means-tested. It can cover some, or all, of the cost of the major adaptation.

Telecare and assistive technology Different types of equipment such as walking frames and stair lifts are called assistive technology because they help you to be independent. One type of assistive technology is Telecare. Telecare devices range from those on which you press a button that raises an alert at a remote centre, to systems that monitor a person’s wellbeing and/ or environment. The equipment can help detect falls, inactivity, smoke, flooding, carbon monoxide, or extreme temperatures, in your home. For example, if your smoke detector is activated or you have had

a fall, sensors alert trained operators at a 24-hour call centre who inform the most appropriate person, such as a relative or the emergency services, that you may need some help. Assistive technology is part of the range of support that we can give you after your assessment. You can also buy these services yourself. For more information or advice, please call Kent Contact and Assessment Service on 0300 333 5433 or email contact.assessment.service@kent.gov.uk.

Personal budgets A personal budget is money paid by us to meet your eligible community care needs. First, we make an assessment of your care and support needs. From this assessment we can say what needs are eligible for support from KCC and set an estimated personal budget. This is the amount of money we think you need to meet your eligible needs. You then develop a support plan. This explains the support you need and how it will be provided. You can ask anyone you feel comfortable with to help you make a support plan. For example, you can ask a family member, a friend, an organisation independent of social services or a member of our staff for help.

social.services@kent.gov.uk

When you develop your support plan, it encourages you to think about what would make a difference in your life and what you would like to achieve. Your support plan lets you describe the changes or improvements that could help you stay healthy, safe and well. It will say who will provide your support, how much it will cost, and how it will be arranged and managed. During the support planning period you will be visited by a Finance and Benefit Officer who will assess (depending on your income and savings) whether or not you need to contribute financially to your support package. The final amount of money agreed will  >>

Personal budgets continued >> be your actual personal budget. A personal budget can be used to get the support that benefits you. As long as your eligible needs

are met, you should be free to spend your personal budget in the way that makes sense to you, as long as this is legal and doesn’t put you or anyone else at risk.

Direct payments You can get direct payments if you: • are aged 16 or over and you need community care services • have parental responsibility for a disabled child If you are a carer aged 16 or over, you may get a one-off direct payment for a specific carer’s service following a carer’s assessment. You can get this even if the person you care for doesn’t take up an assessment or receive services. Direct payments must be used to meet your needs in a way that is legal and doesn’t put someone else at risk. We will need to agree with you in advance what you spend the money on, but we aim to give you as much choice as possible. The money should not be used to employ a close relative or a person living in your house. If you want to, you can have some of your support provided by us and some as a direct payment. The easiest way to receive direct payments is through the Kent Card. This is a chip and pin VISA card which works the same way as a visa debit card and can be used to make payments for services quickly and

securely without the need to write and post cheques or withdraw large amounts of cash. You can also add your own money to the card if you wish to do so. Direct payments are not a social security benefit. They won’t affect any means-tested benefit you are entitled to and they are not taxable. Your assessment should be reviewed at least once a year. This review will let you know if your current arrangements are meeting your needs. If, at any time, you feel your circumstances have changed or your costs have increased, you should contact us to ask for another assessment. If you would like to apply for direct payments or ask for more information, contact us on 0300 333 5433, at a Gateway or through your local social services office. You can also visit www.kent.gov.uk/directpayments or email direct.payments@kent.gov.uk. This Directory’s home care checklist is on page 29.

End of life care All adults should have access to good quality care that allows them to make genuine choices when they are approaching the end of their life. The care and support should enable people to make a real choice about where they will die, preferences may include at home, a care home, hospital or hospice. There are many different kinds of care and support available. End of life care services are there to support people as they approach their end of life as well as possible and to support the individual, families and carers. There are a range of organisations who can help

plan care and support towards the end of life, in both practical and emotional aspects. Home care providers and care homes have staff trained to support people as they approach end of life and will be able to work, if necessary, with other health and social care workers. If you would like to talk to someone about planning end of life care, please contact us on 0300 333 5433 or text relay 18001 0300 333 5433 or email us at social.services@kent.gov.uk.

Being admitted to and leaving hospital If you need to be admitted to hospital the nursing and medical staff will see you shortly after your arrival and ask you questions about your health and home situation. Once a treatment has been agreed you will

12

be told how long you may be in hospital. However, this will be kept under review as the timing for your discharge from hospital may change depending on your recovery.

www.kent.gov.uk/adultsocialservices

0300 333 5433


Being admitted to and leaving hospital continued If you know that you need to go into hospital, it will be important that you make arrangements for the care of your property and pets while you are away. You should also consider: • how your benefits may be affected. The Department of Work and Pensions provide information about how a hospital stay affects benefits; • how you can ensure that your essential bills are paid for example your gas, electricity and rent, while you are away, so that you do not encounter problems when you return home; and • how to organise your return home. With your agreement, and where appropriate, a referral will be made to the hospital social work team who can make an assessment of your needs. It is important that you tell them your views and wishes for the future. If you have someone who helps to look after you, for example family or friends, their views, with your permission, will also be considered. They will also have the opportunity to have their own needs assessed through a carer’s assessment (discussed on page 15). Sometimes a visit to your home may be required and this is carried out by a member of the multidisciplinary team. This is to allow us to assess what services and/or equipment will help you when you are discharged from hospital. Some people may return home from hospital with support. This could be provided by adult social care and/or NHS health teams depending on their needs. You could be referred to the enablement service (explained on page 10), if you are eligible, where you will be supported to safely and gradually undertake everyday living tasks in your own home, for example, cooking, dressing over a set time period as agreed in your care plan, this can change depending on your recovery. You will then be assessed and, if eligible and there is an ongoing social care need, your social care practitioner will work with you to produce a support plan. If you are unable to return home, even with help, you may need to consider your longer term plans. However, you cannot generally stay in hospital whilst you are doing this, as the hospital will need to be able to provide care to others in need of urgent treatment. By continuing to occupy a bed in a hospital when you no longer need it, you are preventing someone else receiving the treatment they need. Not everyone will need this detailed assessment

social.services@kent.gov.uk

of their needs as some people can go home from hospital without any support. Others may have family and friends who can help out for a short time until they feel able to cope on their own again. Recovery A range of services may be provided that will help you recover when you leave hospital. These could be therapists, care assistants or nurses and they may be provided in your own home, or another supported environment, such as a care home for a short period. What if I can’t go home immediately? You may not be able to return home immediately because of practical difficulties, or important decisions needing to be made about your future. You will not be able to stay in hospital whilst these things are being sorted out. The team looking after you will explain what arrangements can be made in the meantime. What if I need a permanent place in a care home? If it has been agreed that your needs would be best met in a care home (including care homes with nursing) you will need to find a home that you can move to immediately. This may not be your first choice of home and you may want to consider moving again at a later date. Sometimes it is not immediately possible to find a vacancy in your preferred area and in these circumstances you will be expected to move further afield. This applies to everyone whether they fund their own care or if it is funded by the local authority. Care funding is explained on page 59. Listings of care homes / care homes with nursing start on page 69 of this Directory. Will I have to pay? There is no cost to the individual for any assessment. If we provide a service, or arrange it for you on leaving hospital, you may have to pay for the service in full or make a contribution to the cost of this service. You will need to have a financial assessment if you need or want the local authority to fund all/part of the service and your Social Worker/Case Manager will be able to explain any charges to you. We understand that some people may not wish to provide details of their financial situation and in these cases the services will still be offered, but you will asked to pay the maximum charge. If you are likely to require a significant amount of health care on a continuing basis you will receive an assessment and information about your rights and entitlements.

Other services Caring for carers We recognise the valuable work of carers and how hard caring can be. Throughout our lives most of us will either give or receive care. Carers come from all walks of life and are not a separate or distinct group of other people. Caring touches all of our lives. This is Kent County Council’s agreed definition of a carer: ‘A carer is someone who in an unpaid capacity provides care or support to another person. Many people do not class themselves as carers: they are mums and dads, husbands, wives, partners, brothers, sisters, friends and neighbours.’ We understand that caring for someone can be very satisfying. We also understand that it may leave you feeling lonely, stressed, exhausted, resentful or angry. It can affect your health, personal relationships, family, employment, leisure time or finances. Whether you are new to caring, or have been caring for some time, there’s a lot you need to think about. For example, are you willing or able to carry on caring? What help do you need? How can you plan for the future? If you are a carer, you have a right to have your needs assessed – even if the person you care for doesn’t want an assessment. A carer’s assessment will help you work out what services and support you need to balance your caring role with other activities such as employment, education and family life. There are a number of ways we can support you if you care for someone. For example, we can arrange short breaks in and away from the home. Or we can set up direct payments to give you and the person you care for more choice and control in buying services. We can also put you in contact with specialist carers’ advice and support groups. These groups can tell you more about how to get a break, meet other carers, get emotional support or help with caring.

You can find more help from: • Kent County Council – we can give you advice on practical services in the home, short-term breaks, aids and equipment, adaptations to the home and anything else that you are concerned about. If you need advice or assistance, please call us on 0300 333 5433. • Your local Carer Support Organisations will be able to offer you a Carers Assessment, information, advice and guidance and a range of other services specifically for carers. These and some other useful links can be found at www.kent.gov.uk/carers. • Your GP – make sure your GP knows that you’re a carer. They can help you get more support by referring you to Carer Support Services, other medical services, community nursing or counselling. Carers have told us that when they have to leave the person they care for, they are worried about what would happen if they were taken ill or involved in an accident. Kent Carer’s Emergency Card helps to give peace of mind. This is a credit-card sized card that you can carry with you at all times. It has no personal information on it apart from a unique reference number. In an emergency, anyone can call the telephone number on the card and quote the unique reference number. The contact centre uses the registration number to find an emergency plan, which you will have pre-arranged, and then put it into action. If you would like to know more about the Kent Carer’s Emergency Card, please visit www.kentcarersemergencycard.org.uk. If you cannot find the information you need, please call us on 0300 333 5433 and we will help.

Day care We know it is important that you have regular social contact, be a part of your community and stay mentally and physically active. Research shows that doing this will help you stay as independent as possible. Some people find it difficult to maintain this social contact without support because they have: • a physical disability

social.services@kent.gov.uk

• • • •

a long-term illness like dementia a sight or hearing loss a learning disability a mental health issue or are an older person and are frail.

If you have had an assessment by one of our case managers and are eligible for community care services you will be offered a direct payment. You can use  >>

Day care continued >> this to help you to join the social activities that are right for you. You may choose to attend a day care centre. Day centres can give you the chance to meet new people, take part in activities (including activities in the wider community), take up a hobby or activity, or get services like chiropody or hairdressing.

If you are a carer, day care centres can also offer a regular break from caring. For more information about day care centres in your area, please visit www.kent.gov.uk/ adultsocialservices, call us on 0300 333 5433, or contact your local Kent Adult Social Services office.

Respite care Many people receive support from informal carers such as relatives or friends. We know that carers sometimes need a break. A break for carers is called ‘respite care’. Respite care can be provided in several ways. Whilst your carer is away, you may wish to enter a care home for a week or two, or you may want additional support provided in your own home. If you receive support from us we will regularly

review your needs to be sure the level of service you are receiving is suitable. Needs change and you may only require support for a short period of time to help you recover from an illness or injury. It is important if you are seeking funding from us that you have a care and financial assessment before choosing a home. For more information visit: www.kent.gov.uk/ adultsocialservices, or call us on 0300 333 5433.

Short term care services A short term bed is a service provided for a maximum period of six weeks that aims to provide short term care in our communities, close to individuals’ homes and their carers, by offering a range of residential and nursing beds so that:

• Practitioners can assess individuals whose longer term future/outcomes are uncertain over a time defined period and aim to ensure the best outcomes for the individual in the short and longer term (thus avoiding longer term placements);

• A carer can book a short break at least 7 days in advance, to have some time to themselves away from their caring role thus offering the carer Respite;

• Emergency/crisis support can be provided for example when a carer has to go into hospital or to prevent breakdown of the caring role;

• Individuals can receive Intermediate Care services from Health if appropriate to the needs of the Service User, which are services that support recovery and rehabilitation in order that the individual can achieve the best chance of re-ablement;

• Kent County Council can support the safeguarding of individuals and their carers. For more information please visit: www.kent.gov.uk/ adultsocialservices or call us on 0300 333 5433.

Dementia care The term ‘dementia’ describes a syndrome where there is a decline in mental functions, including: • memory • reasoning • communication skills and • the ability to carry out daily activities. The onset of dementia can be caused by several factors, such as age, genetic background, medical history and lifestyle. People living with dementia may need to move into a care home because their dementia has progressed to a certain stage or they may have other illnesses or disabilities that make it difficult for them to remain in their own home. Others may need to move from one care home to another for the provision of nursing care. Choosing the right care home is very important. Care homes should provide good quality care that preserves dignity, promotes independence and treats individuals with respect thus enabling people to live well with dementia in a care home environment. Care homes provide either residential or nursing care and the type of home required will depend on the general health of the person with dementia and their care needs. Residential homes provide help with personal care including washing, dressing and eating with some homes providing care home staff with specialist training in dementia care. While nursing homes provide personal care but also have a qualified nurse on duty 24 hours a day. While choosing the right care home for someone with dementia can feel overwhelming, there is a wealth of information available offering advice and support to help you find the most suitable home. Needs, likes and dislikes will be different for each individual with dementia and the information available will help you by suggesting things to consider when visiting homes and questions that can be beneficial to ask. Following the advice available you should ensure that you are able to identify good quality homes that meet your specific requirements. In Kent there are lots of organisations that can

social.services@kent.gov.uk

offer support, advice and guidance if you are directly affected by dementia or if you care for someone who has dementia. For information and advice relating to choosing a care home for a person with dementia and other dementia services please visit: Dementia Web (Dementia information resource for Kent and Medway) www.dementiawebkentandmedway.org.uk Alzheimer’s Society – www.alzheimers.org.uk Kent County Council website – www.kent.gov.uk Or call the 24 hour Dementia Helpline – 0800 500 3014 The Mental Capacity Act The Mental Capacity Act (MCA) 2005 provides a statutory framework for assessing whether a person has capacity to make decisions for themselves. It provides guidelines for carers and professionals about who can make decisions when a person lacks mental capacity. Everyone working with and/or caring for a person over 16 years old, who may lack capacity to make particular decisions for themselves, must comply with the MCA when making decisions or acting for that person. The same rules apply whether the decisions are life-changing events such as having an operation or everyday matters such as what to wear. The MCA can also help people who currently have capacity, but want to make preparations for a time when they may lack capacity to make decisions for themselves, through the introduction of Lasting Powers of Attorney and Advance Decisions. Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DOLS) were introduced into the Mental Capacity Act 2005 through the Mental Health Act 2007. They provide protection for vulnerable adults in hospitals or care homes who lack the mental capacity to consent to the care or treatment they need. DOLS provide a lawful way in which to care for people without their consent, provided that the deprivation of liberty is in their own best interests, is necessary to keep them from harm, and is a proportionate response to the likelihood and seriousness of harm.

Independent living options Choices about where you live Where you live has a great effect on the quality of your life, so when you are thinking about the future it is important to look at all the options very carefully. Think about what you want from where you live, what is important to you and what support you need to remain independent for as long as possible. If you want to move into somewhere with care or support available, it is important that you are supported to make the best choice that is right for you. Kent County Council’s priority is to make sure that people are supported to live independently for as long as possible. This means that if you have particular needs, you should be supported so you have choice and control about your life. It also means you should get support to be part of your local community and to get better access to information and services. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspects many of the support services that you could receive and asks people how satisfied they are with the services they receive. They use this information to help improve the quality of services. All of these policies aim to give you choice and control to get the home and life that you want. You have several choices about where you live:

other services that can support you at home such as a community alarm. You could also consider direct payments which help you take charge of how and when your support happens. Moving on your own or with your carer If your home is not suitable for you any longer or it needs adapting and this cannot be done, you could move to accommodation that does meet your needs. There are lots of options that you could consider such as sheltered or extra care housing. Many of these have waiting lists so it is always good to plan ahead and consider the options in advance. For more information visit www.firststopcareadvice.org.uk or call Kent Contact and Assessment Service on 0300 333 5433 or email contact.assessment.service@kent.gov.uk.

Continuing to live in your current home If your home is adapted for you and you receive the practical and emotional support you need you may prefer to stay living in your own home. There may be help available for adaptations and there are

Extra care housing Extra care housing is either a unit or a cluster of self contained properties, available to rent or buy, built or adapted to facilitate the care and support needs that you might have. Extra care housing could suit you if you need support or if your current housing makes it difficult for you to look after yourself. It offers an alternative to residential care, giving you the chance to live independently in a self-contained home of your own within a larger complex. Access to personal care and support is either available on site or is accessible on call with a physical response received 24 hours a day, to enable people to live independently in a community. A range of communal facilities such as a lounge and

social.services@kent.gov.uk

gardens are usually available for people to meet and join in activities along with access to at least one hot meal a day. Shops and other recreational facilities may also be available. To be eligible for extra care housing, you must have an assessed care need, be registered for housing with the local authority and be over 55 years of age. To find out if there are vacancies in extra care housing schemes visit www.kenthomechoice.org.uk as they will be advertised through Choice Based Lettings.

Care in your own home Staying in your own home We want to help you stay active and independent in your own home for as long as possible and we offer a range of services to help with this. You can have a direct payment to employ a personal assistant or to use an independent agency. Alternatively, you can get these home care services (domiciliary care) through us. If you use our services, we will assess what your needs are. We charge for most services we provide. However, the cost will depend on your weekly income and the value of your savings and investments. This does not include your home. If you use an independent agency, it must be

registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The CQC will make sure the agency provides quality services and that its staff have the proper training. All members of care agency staff must have had checks with the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Protection of Vulnerable Adults (PoVA) list. Some independent agencies can provide nightsitting or live-in services. Some are also registered as nursing agencies. This means they can provide registered nurses to help you. To find out more about the services that agencies provide, refer to the listings of domiciliary care providers, starting on page 31.

Home care services In order to enable people to live in their own home for as long as possible a range of home care services are available. A range of help is on offer from dayto-day tasks such as cleaning, shopping and food preparation/cooking through to personal care that helps with tasks like dressing, bathing, toileting and prompting the taking of medication. Carers need to be properly trained particularly in moving and handling and the use of hoists for some tasks. Daily care / support Carers can call in on a daily basis to assist with any of the tasks described above. Depending on the level of help required their visits can be just half an hour or up to several hours. Generally, visits are available from 7am until 10pm. Some people will need multiple visits per day. Night services can also be provided. The hourly rate for these types of services typically range from £9 to £15 per hour depending on the services required, the time of day and the location. Rural areas may present particular difficulties and a travel charge will probably be made in addition to the normal hourly rate.

be for a short period eg a week, or on an ongoing basis. Typical charges for this service range from £520 to £650 per week depending on the amount of care and the particular skills required. Live-in care is also available to people with permanent physical or mental disabilities who require long-term ongoing care. All home care providers are regulated and inspected by the Care Quality Commission who publish summaries of their latest checks on how providers meet national standards standards on their website www.cqc.org.uk. When considering a service it’s always a good idea to check their report. Before you make any decisions regarding the provision of care, be sure to contact several providers and ask for a ‘Service User’s Guide’ and their charges and a draft contract between you and the care provider.

Live-in care 24 hour live-in can accommodate people with a very high dependency on a permanent basis. It can also provide respite breaks for regular carers and shortterm support following hospital discharge. In some cases it’s preferable and more economic to have a carer actually living in the home. This can

Charging for home care and other non-residential services Before we can provide support to someone, we must first establish what their needs are. This is done by completing a Community Care Assessment. You have the right to a Community Care Assessment regardless of your financial circumstances and there is no charge for an assessment of your needs or any advice you receive from us. If you have been assessed as eligible for community care services and would like our involvement in getting care and support, you need to be financially assessed. A Financial Assessment is an assessment of your ability to contribute towards the cost of your care and support. Under our charging policy, people who have savings or investments of more than £23,250 will pay the full cost of their care and support. When deciding whether your savings and investments exceed £23,250, certain things are disregarded including the value of the home where you normally live. If you have savings of less than £23,250, you will be assessed to see if you are able to make a contribution to the cost of your support. We work out your contribution by looking at your weekly income, including pensions and benefits such as Attendance Allowance and Disability Living Allowance – Care Component.

In addition, if you have savings or investments between £14,250 and £23,250, we will take into account an assumed income of £1 per week for every £500 or part of £500. If you have savings of less than £14,250 we do not take these into account when working out your contribution. Further details on our charging policy for domiciliary care can be find in our booklet ‘Charging for home care and other non-residential services’ which can be accessed at: www.kent.gov.uk/domiciliarycare For further advice and information, call this Directory’s independent advice line: 0800 38 92 077 provided in association with FirstStop Advice

Home care agency checklist

© 2013 Care Choices Ltd

These questions may be useful when considering using the services of a home care (domiciliary) provider to help you build up a picture of how your care needs will be met in your own home. For care packages which have been arranged by Kent Adult Social Services, contracts and care plans will have been completed by your care manager and the agencies used will have been accredited to work for Kent Adult Social Services. Agency 1 

£ ............... p/h

Agency 2 

£ ............... p/h

Agency 3 

£ ............... p/h

Agencies • What experience does the agency have in your particular field of need? Can they supply references for you to check?    • How long has the agency been operating?    • How many carers would the agency assign to care for you and would you see the same one every day? If not, how does the staff rota operate and what happens if your carer goes on holiday or is sick? Will you be notified in advance that a different carer will be attending?    

• How can you contact the agency in an emergency or outside office hours?   • How hard or easy would it be to make a complaint and how are things then put right?   • Home care agencies providing personal care, must be registered and inspected by the Care Quality Commission. Ask to see a copy of their registration certificate. • If this is a private contract ask for a copy of the agency’s contract terms and read these carefully with someone you trust. Get as much help as you can going over it and ask any questions you may have before signing anything. The Citizens Advice Bureau or Age Concern (now called Age UK in some areas) could help with this.

Carers • You should expect your personal preferences, dignity and privacy to be respected. Discuss this with the agency and ask how the most suitable carers for your particular care are chosen. Can you talk to them before deciding?    

• Carers should be fully trained or be in ongoing training. Ask the agency about their policies on this. • You will have a care plan drawn up by the agency which the carers will work to. Ask how often this plan will be reviewed by the agency. • Carers must be checked with the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and have a criminal records disclosure – make sure this is the case.

Paying • If your care needs do not meet Kent Adult Social Services’ eligibility criteria and have been arranged privately you should check carefully the fee rates charged and exactly what the payment you make covers.

Moving into a care home Types of care home Fundamentally, there are two types of home: Care homes without nursing care These homes offer accommodation, meals, and help with personal care, including bathing, washing and dressing. Care homes can also offer short term care while you recover from an illness or a fall. Some care homes provide services for people with a specific medical need, ie for people affected by dementia, and some for individuals with a disability. Care homes with nursing These homes provide the same services as care homes without nursing care, but they also cater for people with complex health needs whose care must be delivered or supervised by a qualified nurse. The nursing care in these homes is assessed and paid for by the NHS and registered nurses are on duty 24 hours a day. Care homes without nursing care are sometimes also called nursing homes, which can be confusing. So you need to make sure you know whether the home offers nursing care or not. Listings of care homes begin on page 69 of this Directory.

Choosing a care home – questions to ask If you would like to move into a care home because you can no longer manage in your own home, there are lots of homes you can choose from. Moving to a care home is a very important decision and you should consider all your options very carefully. Apart from care homes, there are a range of services designed to support you staying in your own home – like a domiciliary service or other accommodation choices such as extra care housing. Care homes offer support and personal care or full-time nursing care, 24 hours a day. They offer accommodation, meals and help with bathing, washing, dressing and support with individual activities. When choosing a care home, you need to consider what is most important to you in terms of the support you want to receive. The environment, facilities, equipment, staffing and lifestyle can all be important. Think about the location and how the home can meet your individual needs. Is it close to other amenities that are important to you, like a place of worship, shops or leisure facilities? Also, think about those visiting you and how close the home is to your family and friends, whether there is enough parking on-site or nearby or if the home is close to public transport links. Don’t forget to ask questions and take notes about the home’s services and facilities. You might find the questionnaire starting on page 55 helpful when making this decision. It is a good idea to visit different care homes before making a decision, so you know all your options. You should also look at the most recent Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection report for the home. You can see CQC reports online at www.cqc.org.uk or you can ask the home to show you their latest report. If there are areas of the report that you need more information about, seek clarification and reassurance before you make your decision. All care homes in England must be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The Commission regulates the care provided by all providers, including in care homes. You can find a list all homes registered to provide care in England on their website. For more details about the Care Quality Commission please see page 59. If you or your relatives are able to pay care fees in full, you can make arrangements to pay the fees directly to the home. If you are applying for funding from Kent Adult Social Services, we will meet with you or your relatives (and, if you wish, a carer) to talk

social.services@kent.gov.uk

about your needs and how we can meet them. If the best option for you is to be supported in a care home, we will do a financial assessment to calculate how much you will be required to contribute (if any) towards the care home fees. For more information about how we charge for care, please see page 59. If you are not eligible for help to pay for your care home, it is important to seek advice about your finances. You may want to look at the advice provided by Age UK at www.ageuk.org.uk, among other information sources available. Your family and friends can be involved in this discussion if you would like them to be. You can get more information about local care services from the listings section in this Directory starting on page 69. You can also search: www.kent.gov.uk/careservices for services.

Choosing the right care home for Mum was made easier. • Nursing Care • Residential Care • Dementia Care • Respite Care

From the moment my mother and I first visited her Barchester home, we knew we had found somewhere pretty special. Elegant surroundings, delicious food and beautiful gardens were made even more appealing by the presence of like-minded residents with whom she can socialise and enjoy activities. For my part, knowing that she’s safe in the care of such a dedicated and compassionate team gives me great peace of mind. And for that I’m extremely grateful.

The Care Quality Commission The CQC are the independent regulator of all health and social care services in England. CQC’s aim is to make sure that care provision meets national Essential Standards of Quality and Safety. The CQC register care services that meet the standards, inspect them to check that they continue to do so and take action when a provider doesn’t meet the Standards. The National Standards These cover all aspects of care, including: • treating people with dignity and respect, • making sure food and drink meets people’s needs, • making sure that that the environment is clean and safe, and • managing and staffing services.

Inspections During the inspections, the CQC: • ask people about their experiences of receiving care, • talk to care staff, • check that the right systems and processes are in place, and • look for evidence that care isn’t meeting national standards. They make unannounced inspections of services on a regular basis and at any time in response to concerns. For more information, please visit: www.cqc.org.uk/public, or call: 03000 616161.

Paying for residential care If you are planning to move into a care home it is essential that you fully understand what Kent County Council can provide and pay for. You also need to be certain about costs and what you can afford. Below are some common questions and answers that may help. It is also important that you get independent advice. Please note that the figures given below apply from April 2013 and are likely to change again in April 2014.

except for a weekly amount for personal expenses. This is currently £23.90 per week. Your capital includes: your savings, investments and the value of any property or land you own. If you have capital below £14,250 then it is completely ignored. If you have capital between £14,250 and £23,250, you will also pay a capital tariff of £1 per week for each £250 between these two figures. For example, if you have capital worth £15,000 you would pay a capital tariff of £3 per week.

Who qualifies for local authority assistance? You first need to be assessed as needing a place in a care home. Once this has been decided, if your weekly income is less than the weekly cost of a home, we will help you financially – but only if your savings, investments and assets are less than £23,250 (the current upper capital limit). If you have capital worth more than this, you will have to pay the full costs of a care home place. It may still be worth asking for an assessment to see if we agree that you do need to be in residential care of if there are any alternatives. We can also advise whether the home you choose is one we are likely to fund if your capital reduces below the upper capital level in the future. You must not assume we will do this. Your income includes: state social security benefits, pensions and any other money you may have coming in. You will be expected to contribute your income towards the cost of the residential home

Is the value of my home taken into account? The value of your home (if you own or part own it) will be ignored whilst you are only temporarily in residential care and also for the first 12 weeks of a permanent stay funded via the local authority (the 12 Week Property Disregard). After that it will be taken into account unless it is occupied by your spouse, partner, a lone parent who is your former partner, a relative who is aged over 60 or incapacitated or your child under 18.

social.services@kent.gov.uk

How does the 12 Week Property Disregard work? If, apart from your former home, your other assets and savings are less than £23,250, we may be able to help you financially for the first 12 weeks, as the value of your former home is disregarded during this period. You will still, however, be expected to make a contribution to the cost of your care home based on your weekly income (like pensions and benefits)  >>

18001 0300 333 5433

59


Paying for residential care continued >> and income from any other capital you own. Do I have to sell my former home after the 12 weeks? Not necessarily. In some circumstances, we can lend you the money to pay for your care, charged against your property value. This is called Deferred Payments. We will be able to tell you if you qualify and how much we are able to pay for a care home. If you are considering this option you should get independent advice so you can work out all the implications, including the effect on your benefit entitlement. What happens if I want to sell my former home but can’t do it quickly enough to be able to pay for my own care? You may qualify for the Deferred Payments scheme mentioned above, or our Temporary Financial Assistance scheme. Factsheets are available on both of these schemes. Do not assume you will qualify for these schemes until this has been agreed with Kent County Council. Under the Deferred Payments and Temporary Financial Assistance schemes how will I pay back the money KCC has paid for my care? KCC will place a legal charge on your property (like a mortgage) so that when it is sold we can reclaim the money we have spent. During the period when KCC is temporarily funding your care, you will still be expected to make a contribution based on your weekly income (like pensions and benefits) and income from any other capital you own. If the state is contributing to the cost of my care home through Kent County Council, do I have a choice of care home? Yes. In fact, you can even choose a care home in a different county. However, the home you choose must be suitable for your needs (as we have assessed them), it must comply with the terms and conditions we set and it must not cost more than we would usually pay for someone with your needs. What if the home costs more than Kent County Council is prepared to pay? We will allow a third party (a relative, friend, charity etc) to top-up your fees if they are able to do so over the long term. You are not allowed to top-up the fees yourself except during the 12 Week Property Disregard period or if you take advantage of the Deferred Payments scheme.

Do I have to pay council tax on my former home if it is empty? If you move into a care home on a permanent basis and your property is left empty you should receive full exemption from council tax. My partner needs residential care – how does this affect me? Only the person requiring care will be means-tested. If they receive a private pension only 50% of this will be taken into account. If you still occupy their former home as their partner, it is disregarded in the financial assessment. We will take into account 50% of any joint savings. It is advisable to have separate accounts and to meet care costs from the account of the person in the care home. Is there any financial help I can claim that is not means-tested? If you are self funding (including if you are using the Deferred Payments or Temporary Financial Assistance route) you may wish to find out more about Attendance Allowance or Disability Living Allowance (soon to be replaced by the Personal Independence Payment). These are non-means-tested, non-taxable allowances.

Paying for residential care continued To find out about Attendance Allowance, Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payment please visit www.direct.gov.uk or call the DWP’s Benefit Enquiry Line on 0800 882200 (textphone 0800 243355). In addition, although Pension Credit is meanstested, there is no upper capital limit and so, depending on your income, you may still qualify. If you have capital over £10,000 you will have to contribute £1 per week for every £500 you have above the £10,000 limit. To find out if you qualify visit www.direct.gov.uk or call the The Pension Service on 0800 991234. The age at which a person can claim Pension Credit is being gradually raised from 60 to 66 between April 2010 and April 2020. Also, whether a care home stay is temporary or permanent, if you receive nursing care in a care home, you should be entitled to an NHS Nursing Care Contribution towards registered nurse time costs. This is currently £109.79 per week. If you need health care, you may be entitled to full funding from the NHS under their NHS Continuing Care eligibility criteria. If you would like to discuss this further contact the NHS in Kent on one of the following numbers:

What happens if I move into a care home independently and later run out of money? Once your capital reduces to £23,250 we can give you financial assistance providing we assess that you need to be in residential care. However, if the care home costs more than we usually pay and won’t reduce its fees, you may need to find a source of top-up money or cheaper accommodation. If it is likely that you will run out of money, you should ask us for an assessment. We will check if the care home owner can continue to accommodate you at our funding rates. We advise you do this about three months before your money reduces to £23,250. For more information or advice, please call Kent Contact and Assessment Service on 0300 333 5433 or email contact.assessment.service@kent.gov.uk.

Charging for home care and other non-residential services Before we can provide support to someone we must first establish what their needs are. This is done by completing a Community Care Assessment. You have the right to a Community Care Assessment regardless of your financial circumstances and there is no charge for an assessment of your needs or any advice you receive from us. If you have been assessed as eligible for community care services and would like our involvement in getting care and support, you need to be financially assessed. A Financial Assessment is an assessment of your ability to contribute towards the cost of your care and support. Under our charging policy, people who have savings or investments of more than £23,250 will pay the full cost of their care and support. When deciding whether your savings and investments exceed £23,250 certain things are disregarded including the

social.services@kent.gov.uk

value of the home in which you normally reside. If you have savings under £23,250 you will be assessed to see if you are able to make a contribution to the cost of your support. We work out your contribution by looking at your weekly income, including pensions and benefits such as Attendance Allowance and Disability Living Allowance – Care Component. In addition, if you have savings or investments between £14,250 and £23,250 we will take into account an assumed income of £1 per week for every £500 or part of £500. If you have savings of less than £14,250 we do not take these into account when working out your contribution. Further details on our charging policy for home care and other non-residential services can be found in our booklet ‘Charging for home care and other non-residential services’ which can be accessed at: www.kent.gov.uk/adultsocialservices

Other essential information How to recognise abuse Adult safeguarding is about protecting vulnerable adults. This includes keeping people safe and protecting them from abuse. It is also about keeping people safe in their home. This includes fire safety and home security. There are different kinds of abuse – older people and those with disabilities can be especially vulnerable. Physical abuse could be assault or inappropriate sexual behaviour and intimidation. Other kinds of abuse are not physical. Financial abuse and psychological abuse can put people under pressure to do things they do not want to do. A deliberate or careless refusal to provide adequate care for someone could be neglect. Adults who are neglected can feel they have been left alone or abandoned. Neglect can leave people malnourished or seriously ill because they are not getting the right food, care or medicine. Some people can treat others differently because of their age, disability, ethnicity, sexuality, faith or skin colour. This could be seen as discrimination, bullying or harassment.

talk to someone about it. There are many ways we can support you or someone you think is at risk or might need protecting. If you report something, we will discuss with you what action, if any, might be taken. If no one reports a problem, neglect, abuse or assault could continue when something could be done to stop it. If you think you or another person is at risk of harm or abuse, please contact: 0300 333 5433. If someone is in immediate risk contact the emergency services on 999. For further information go to: www.medway.gov.uk/abuse www.kent.gov.uk/adultprotection

What can you do to protect yourself and others from abuse? With each kind of abuse, neglect, undue pressure or assault, there is often someone who knows it is happening or suspects that something is wrong. By taking responsibility and reporting it, you can help yourself and others. This will help people keep their dignity and respect, protect their finances and keep them safe from physical harm. Anyone who thinks they might suspect abuse can

Safeguarding Safeguarding is our major priority. If there are any concerns about someone who appears to be vulnerable, particularly if the reason is financial, physical, emotional, psychological, involves sexual discrimination, neglect or domestic violence, then contact Families and Social Care on 0300 333 5433. This telephone line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The matter will be treated in confidence. From December 2012 the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) merged to form the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). This new service provides a joined up service to combine the criminal records and barring functions.

social.services@kent.gov.uk

Care home owners, organisations providing care in people’s own homes and employment agencies which supply care workers, are required to ask for checks as part of a range of rigorous pre-employment screening, including disclosures from the Disclosure and Barring Service. Care providers and suppliers of care workers or volunteer co-ordinators must refer workers to the Disclosure and Barring Service if, in their view, the individual has been guilty of misconduct that harmed, or placed at risk of harm, a vulnerable adult. They must also report a worker or volunteer who left their service before a full investigation could be completed.

Comments, compliments and complaints All organisations need to know how they are performing – and it’s not just when things go well. We also need to know when things go wrong. Your views will help us improve our services. If you need to make a complaint, you should feel able to. You can complain about any aspect of your care and support that affects your happiness or comfort. This could be about the way you are treated by a staff member or the quality of the food you are served. You can also make comments and suggestions about how your surroundings and the services you get could be improved. Making a complaint should not be difficult for you. Under the Care Quality Commission’s Essential Standards of Quality and Safety, care providers must have in place a complaints procedure, which is easy to access. If you are concerned about the care that you, a friend or a relative is receiving, it makes sense to speak to the manager first. They may be able to resolve the problem quite easily once they are aware of it. However, if you need to make a formal complaint, you should contact the registered owners of the service. They have a duty to respond to your complaint. If your complaint is about a breach of regulations, contact your local Care Quality Commission office. You can find the Commission’s contact details on page 59. If we have arranged and funded your services, you may wish to tell the person you are dealing with, or someone senior to them, what the problem is. They will try to find a solution that everyone is happy with. Most problems are sorted out this way. Alternatively, you can contact our customer care team (who will help with your complaint) by telephone, email or letter. Make sure you give your full contact details so that we can contact you to discuss your concerns. Since 2010, all self-funding (including direct payments) clients have the right to refer any

social.services@kent.gov.uk

complaints that they may have to the Local Government Ombudsman once the care home or domiciliary care agency has had an opportunity to investigate and try to resolve the complaint.

NHS 111

Since March 2013, 111 is the new three-digit number which is making it easier for patients to access local NHS healthcare services.

NHS 111 will get you through to a team of trained call advisers, who are supported by experienced clinicians. They will ask questions to assess your symptoms and provide the healthcare advice you need or direct you to the right local service. The NHS 111 team will, where possible, book you an appointment or transfer you directly to the people you need to speak to. If they think you need an ambulance, they will send one immediately, just as if you had originally dialled 999. 999. The 111 service is also available via ‘Typetalk’ 18001 111.. For less urgent health needs, you should still contact your GP in the usual way.

You should call NHS 111 if:

✆ You need medical help fast, but it is not a 999 emergency ✆ You do not know who to call for medical help or you do not have a GP to call ✆ You require health information or reassurance about what to do next

The Knoll Nursing Home & Ami Court 196 - 198 Dover Road, Walmer, Deal, Kent, CT14 7NB Ami Court: T - 01304 371126 / F - 01304 372870, The Knoll Nursing Home: T - 01304 374679

The Knoll Nursing Home has been delivering a consistently excellent standard of nursing care for over 20 years, gaining an enviable reputation in the area. Now, building on that success, and continuing the Knoll’s ethos that the health and well being of its residents is paramount, Matron Amita Patel has opened Ami Court. Ami Court is a purpose built, state of the art Nursing Home, situated adjacent to the Knoll in the sought after residential area of Walmer and close to its Castle and the Beach. The new building has been designed with space and comfort in mind and, just like the Knoll, has lift access to all the floors. All rooms are bright and spacious with large windows and an individual en-suite facility including a wet room. Each room is tastefully furnished, has its own telephone line and a flat screen HD television. Both homes have a nurse call system in each room and qualified nursing care 24 hours a day. All diets are catered for from the ‘Home Cooking’ kitchen.There are regular visits from our own GP, hairdresser, chiropodist and an aromatherapist, amongst others, and in house communion and other services from local churches can be arranged. Additionally, both homes have daily activities and entertainment. The homes are beautifully decorated and are ideal for long/short stay, convalescence or respite care. The over-riding aim for both homes is to provide the highest standard of qualified nursing care in a warm, friendly environment.

Awarded ‘excellent’ by the Care Quality Commission For further information, please contact the Matron, Amita Patel on 01304 374679 Email: rajandknoll@hotmail.co.uk

Quality & care...

...it’s at the heart of everything we do. St Margaret’s is an established nursing home, which has served the local community for many years. We treat every resident with dignity and respect and aim to promote a happy and healthy environment for all. We care about our residents. All our staff, regardless of their role at St Margaret’s want to know you are happy and that we are doing all we can to provide you with a comfortable home and a feeling of wellbeing. Whether you are looking for yourself or a family member, choosing a suitable nursing home can be a difficult decision. Our unique canal-side location with Hythe High Street just a short walk away offers the opportunity for our residents to enjoy not only the amenities of St Margaret’s but also those on our doorstep. Our care will suit your individual requirements, from nursing care to short-term convalescence and respite to palliative care. Above all, the home is about having familiar surroundings, your own things and space and a sense of belonging. It’s also about maintaining privacy and independence and not losing control over your own life. Whether taking part in group activities, going for a short walk, enjoying the company of our other residents or having some quality time to yourself, your preference will be respected. We are totally dedicated to care, not only for our residents but for their relatives as well.
