Brendoncare is a registered charity, dedicated to improving the quality of life for older people through our 10 care homes and 90 friendship and wellbeing clubs. Brendoncare Froxfield provides nursing care for 44 residents including a safe environment for 11 people living with dementia. Froxfield provides a Marlborough care home where older people can be helped to live as independently as possible and where the emphasis is on quality and enjoyment of life.
Located in the village of Froxfield, it has all the convenience of a purpose-built home while the attractive gardens, surrounding Wiltshire countryside and neighbouring 17th century almshouses lend it charm.
The Brendoncare Care for Life promise ensures that once residents are accepted in one of our homes they will not have to leave due to lack of funds. Care for Life is a charitable third party top-up* payment that can support those residents who may have been with us for a while and whose own funds have depleted to the threshold set by the Local Authority’s Social Services. At that point social services will start to contribute to the cost of care. We fund about 20% of residents in this way so, in order to help with our own financial planning, we ask residents to complete a financial assessment before moving in to one of our homes. For residents and family members the Care for Life promise often provides enormous relief and reassurance.
*Top-up payments are the difference that needs to be ‘topped-up’ between what the public sector will pay and a care home’s full fees. Third party top-up payments are payments made by a third party, such as a family member or a charity, such as Brendoncare, through our Care for Life promise. Social Services will assess and still require residents to make an affordable contribution.
