Everyone’s needs are different so your care requirements will be assessed specifically for you as an individual as will your own personal preferences. In this way we’ll be able to provide everything you need and want in your life at Mount Olivet.
Because of this we are unable to tell you exactly how much your care will cost until we have met you and had time to fully assess your requirements. However, to ensure these are fair and provide good value, the overall level of fees is determined using the model developed for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation by Laing and Buisson.

For a confidential discussion about your requirements or to arrange a visit to Mount Olivet to take a look around please don’t hesitate to contact us on 01803 500802 or feel free to drop in anytime.
How will you be funded?
The majority of resident’s in our homes are privately funded, paying the cost of care themselves. If this applies to you we will provide you with a fully costed care package based on your care assessment and your personal preferences as described above.
Our terms are that the fees are payable monthly in advance and are non-refundable. Terms and conditions of care are regulated by a standard contract, a copy of which is available on request.
If you are unsure if you will be required to pay the cost of care yourselves we recommend contacting your solicitor or download our free guide to care funding below.
Local Authority Funding
Whilst the majority of resident’s in our homes are private, we do have social services and NHS clients and contracts in place with both Torbay and Devon Social Services departments as well as a few more distant authorities. If you are fully funded a few of our beds are available within the fee levels that local authorities are able to meet. However, most rooms are availabe if funded with this contribution and a relatively modest top-up from private or family resources or a one-off payment to a care fees scheme.
If you need advice on social security entitlements or help with financing – whether full private or top-up – we have contacts with Independent Financial Advisors who will provide expert, free advice on benefits and can offer a number of very effective, specialist schemes to meet fees. Please contact us for more details.
Remuneration to the Advisors for this advice is either by commission from the underwriting companies or on a fee basis. In addition, charities such as Age UK (was Age Concern) provide similar services, also remunerated by commission. Alternatively we can recommend a non-commission Advisor who will offer you free advice on entitlements. We receive no commission for any introductions.
We strongly recommend that you take professional advice to establish your entitlement.
