Highbury House

Permanent or Respite Care

Highbury House Residential Home has been run by its owners for over 27 years. Where the quality of care is as much a concern as the high standard of accommodation the home provides.

There have been many changes over the years at Highbury and a lot of thought to detail has been given to ensure all residents have the best facilities possible, including wheelchair ramps at all exits.

All rooms are ensuite with varied decor to suit every taste although residents are encouraged to bring along personal items of their choice to add that personal touch.

The atmosphere is very friendly with two conservatories, one at the front and one in the middle of the building. Both are bright and airy together with a main lounge for residents to sit, watch T. V. or read. Whatever they wish just to enjoy at their leisure.

A wide range of menus are available at Highbury. Special dietary needs are catered for. All meals are freshly prepared daily by our resident cooks in our fully fitted kitchen.

All the residents at Highbury are ensured that they receive excellent care with the help of their own GP if required or a local GP alongside the district nurses. The home does provide 24hr care with a very skilled team of staff on duty at all times.

Highbury House Residential Home is situated at the South end of Lytham Rd in a very popular position close to Highfield Rd shops, Post Office, library, parks and Churches. We also at Highbury have regular coach trips each month whatever the weather for those who wish to go along with many other activities.

Because it is an enormous decision being made when going into care either from home or hospital, there are many questions to be asked. At Highbury we have staff experienced in answering all these questions in order to make this transitional period easier and less worrying.

If you have any questions or would like to arrange to visit please don’t hesitate to contact us at Highbury.

Ring and ask for the person in charge who has many years of experience in residential care and is only too happy to help.

Financial Support

The state will provide a level of care for the least well off. Your local council will conduct a financial assessment to establish whether you can afford to pay. You will have to pay at least some of the costs of accommodation and personal costs in a care home.

Briefly, there are three bands of support:

  • Your local authority may pay for the cost of your residential care if your capital is less than £12,750
  • Your local authority will still pay for your accommodation ad personal care, but not fully. If your capital is between £12,750 and £21,000 for every £250 you have over the lower amount, they will subtract £1 per week from the money they contribute.
  • You will have to pay the full costs of your accommodation and personal care if your capital is over £21,000

If your capital falls below the upper amount while you are in a care home, you will become eligible for help from the local authority. If you want a more expensive home than the authority is willing to pay for, you are allowed to arrange a ‘third party contribution’ from another source. Your home would be included in your assets only if you live alone, or you are both moving into a care home. In addition, the local authority will disregard the value of your home for 12 weeks after your admission to permanent residential care.
