FAQs

Frequently asked questions

What is a neurological condition?

Conditions affecting the brain and nervous system. This includes degenerative conditions which get worse over time, and acquired conditions resulting from a brain or spinal injury or stroke.

What conditions do you look after?

We are here for people with degenerative conditions which get worse over time – such as motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s – as well as those with acquired conditions resulting from a brain or spinal injury or stroke.

How much will care cost at The Chantry and what funding is available?

The cost of care is dependent on an individual assessment. Our care will generally be more expensive than a general older person’s nursing home due to the more complex disabilities and  quality of life needs of a younger age group which requires a higher staff and therapy team input. Where individuals are not eligible for continuing health care funding, the majority of other people needing our care are joint funded by the local authority and CCG. We also accept private self-funding individuals.

Can I personalise my own room?

Yes of course. All of our rooms are very individual to those residents living in them. You are welcome to bring in items of furniture, furnishings and equipment as long as it can be accommodated within your room and meets health and safety requirements.
