Are Belmont Care Homes in East Sussex certified and inspected by authorities?

Belmont Care Homes in East Sussex has been registered with and approved by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The CQC looks for new ways to enhance the security, competence, consideration, and high quality of the health and social care services provided in England.

What is the difference between a care home and a nursing home?

Similar to residential care, nursing care offers assistance to those who need a registered nurse's supervision around-the-clock. Those who need extra help and support can live in an environment that feels like home with residential care, which provides live-in housing and supervised staff who are on call around-the-clock.

Are there any State Benefits we may be entitled to?

Possibly as most state benefits are means-tested. Attendance Allowance is an exception; it is a non-means tested, tax-free state benefit, payable to all individuals over the age of 65 who have needed care (defined as help with essential daily tasks, such as washing and dressing) for longer than six consecutive months.

Attendance Allowance is available at two rates; a lower rate, for those who need help during the day or the night and a higher rate, for those needing care during both the day and night. The current weekly figures (2015/16) are £55.10 lower rate and £82.30 for the higher rate. Claim forms can be obtained from larger Post Offices, Citizens Advice Bureaux or downloaded from the website at

Individuals needing care under the age of 65 will still qualify for an allowance, but this is paid in the form of Disability Living Allowance.

Is there free nursing care in East Sussex?

The NHS will cover the cost of any nursing care provided by a registered nurse that a person in a nursing home is assessed as needing. This cost is a flat rate of £112 at the standard rate, or £154.12 at the higher rate, a week in England and £140.90 a week in Wales (for 2015/16), and is called NHS-funded nursing care (formerly known as the registered nursing care contribution).

Anyone entering a nursing home should be assessed to see if they qualify for NHS-funded nursing care. If they do, this money will be paid directly to the nursing home. The assessment is repeated annually thereafter, and it is possible that individuals will find themselves re-banded after each assessment.

Continuing Health Care

Some people with ongoing health needs may be entitled to all their fees in a nursing home being paid by the Primary Care Trust (PCT). To be eligible, a continuing care health assessment is conducted by a designated nurse from the PCT and is taken to a panel for discussion on whether the individual meets certain criteria. The assessment should be conducted with the knowledge and input of the resident, next of kin and other professionals involved in the person’s care. In some circumstances, the assessment process can be fast-tracked, eg when a person is diagnosed as terminally ill with a life expectancy of one month or less.
