Access to Funding

Residential and nursing care is mostly funded privately by each individual requiring care. However, it might be possible that you are eligible for the local council to pay towards your nursing care if you have less than £23,250 in savings. 

From October 2023 this will rise to £100,000 in savings.


Exactly how much your council will pay depends on what care you need and how much you can afford to pay.

In these circumstances, we can guide you towards the necessary resources online to find out for your circumstances.

Cedars Nursing Home and Castle Hill House have now merged all their services, based out of one building at The Cedars in Angel Lane, Shaftesbury. We still provide residential and dementia nursing to all our residents.
