Long Term Residential Care
Long-term care (LTC) is aimed at supporting both the medical and non-medical needs of individuals with a chronic illness or disability who cannot care for themselves for long periods of time.
The Needs Assessment Panel (NAP) meets weekly on a Thursday in Guernsey and is attended by the assessing Social Worker, who presents the individuals needs assessment to the panel, who then make a decision on suitability for either Respite or Long Term Care Certification.
If certified as appropriate for Long Term Residential Care the individual is required to pay a contribution towards their care on top of Social Security's awarded benefit called a 'co-payment'.
The 2023 co-payment fees (for those who do qualify for a Long Term Care Certificate) under this arrangement are,
- Residential Long Term Care at the Connaught or Jubilee; £306.46
- This includes 24hr support with any personal care needs, laundry, all bills (heating, TV licence, ambulance subscription etc.), daily room cleaning, three meals per day including snacks, activities and entertainment.
