When considering care homes we recommend asking some questions to ensure that you are comparing like with like.
At Peregrine House the fee quoted to you at the outset includes everything that is required for the care of your loved one, who we will look after as though they were our own.
Our fee will not go up because their perceived care needs increase soon after admission. It includes all toiletries, fresh fruit and any nutritional favourites notified to us.
It also includes staff accompanying your loved one on visits to GPs, dentists and other health professionals in Whitby as well as the hospitals in Whitby, Scarborough and Middlesbrough.
These key benefits are commonly not included in “headline” care fees quoted by other care homes, which can come as a nasty shock after your loved one has been admitted. We urge you to BEWARE!
