Funding Routes Accepted by ISLE VIEW CARE HOME – AKAM CARE LTD

The following funding routes for new residents are accepted by Isle View Care Home:

Route 1 (self determined route) where individuals either decide not to apply for personal and/or nursing care payments, or where they were assessed as not being eligible, in which situation, the resident would enter into a contractual arrangement privately and independently with the provider agency.
Route 2 (the mutual route) where individuals had been assessed as being eligible for payments but wished to have a direct contractual arrangement with the provider agency for the non-personal or nursing element of their care. This route would require two contracts i.e. a contract between the resident and the care home for the accommodation costs of his/her care and a contract between the Council and the care home in relation to the payment of the free personal care element.

We do not accept self-funding residents under National Contract (Route 3).

 

Self-funding Residents

Self-funding residents who run out of their own funding and become council-funded will retain where possible their room. However, if the fee rate provided by the council is lower than the fee rate agreed under self-funding and they are in a larger room, we retain the right to request that the resident move to a smaller room. The resident and/or their family or representative will be consulted about any room change.

Please note that from April 2007 a National Quality Scheme for Care Homes is being phased in across Scotland. What this means is that the standard charges that Councils pay Care Homes may vary depending on the quality of the service provided. If this happens we will advise you – this is unlikely to affect the charge you pay unless you are a self-funder.
