The Ambassador

Permanent or Respite Care

The Ambassador Residential Care Home is an ideal environment for residents to enjoy the very best in comfort and care.

Every possible care has been taken in designing our care home ensuring that our residents’ needs and requirements are catered for, providing easy access for wheelchairs etc, including passenger lifts.

The Ambassador stands in it’s own spacious grounds with beautifully maintained gardens to the front and rear providing an ideal place to spend many a happy hour, weather permitting.

The Ambassador realises the need for individualism, all rooms are en suite with varied decors to suit every taste. We actively encourage our new residents to bring whatever personal belongings they wish, ensuring that they create their own personal touch.

The Ambassador has a warm friendly atmosphere and the spacious lounge offers every comfort. The lounge is bright and almost has a concept of a secondary lounge due to its L shape. It is the perfect place to enjoy a quiet moment or play games and other activities at leisure.

A wide range of menus are available at The Ambassador. Special dietary needs are catered for. All meals are freshly prepared daily by our resident chefs in our fully equipped kitchen. Meals are served in our traditional homely dining room.

Although The Ambassador is not a nursing home we endeavor to ensure that our residents receive the appropriate care required with the help and advice of  local GP’s and District Nurses.

The Ambassador provides total support by specially trained staff who are carefully selected to ensure that the standards of care are not only high but are carried out in a thoughtful and friendly manner. We respect the dignity and independence of our residents at all times.

Care at The Ambassador continues 24 hours a day and there is always a skilled team of staff on duty to assist whatever the hour.

The Ambassador is situated in the South of Blackpool only 5 minutes from the promenade and offers a prime location to local shops and other amenities.

Whatever the season a choice of activities and regular outings are organised. In-house entertainment is arranged regularly.

Here at The Ambassador we understand that the decision to re-locate to a care home can be a difficult one, which is why we have specially trained staff on hand to help with all the administration involved with such a move.

If you would like any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us: David Mosely, who with over 25 years experience in residential care for the elderly, will only be too happy to assist however they can. Viewings with transport readily arranged.

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.
