Contents Insurance For Care Home Residents

Contents insurance is often a legal requirement for anyone living in a care home in the UK. While some residential homes offer contents insurance as part of their care package, many don't, and those that do could leave you underinsured or with the wrong sort of cover, depending on what items you have in your room.

With Chartwell's contents insurance for residential care, all of your own personal belongings, and those of your family that are kept in the home, will be covered up to £75,000. Your possessions will be protected against break in with the option to be covered away from the property too, ideal for carrying phones, money or jewellery on trips away from the care home.

Chartwell's care home contents insurance provides a great level of cover at very competitive premiums, designed to keep you protected without adding to your care home fees. Just some of the features of our policies are:

  • Cover for any personal items kept in your room
  • Cover for property taken away from the home on days out
  • Up to £75,000 worth of cover for your possessions
  • The chance to specify high-value items, such as jewellery and family heirlooms, to keep them as safe as possible
  • Excess fees from as low as £50.00
  • Care home insurance which protects you against break-in and theft
  • Insurance for any mobility equipment, including wheelchairs and walking frames

Unlike many other companies, by insuring your contents outside of your room we give you the freedom and flexibility to use the care home as your house, without feeling restricted to your bedroom. We won't charge you extra or make any changes to your policy if staff have a key to your room.

As specialist insurance brokers with masses of experience helping our elderly and disabled customers, at Chartwell we are confident of being able to find you the right care home contents insurance policy for you.

Tailored to fit your explicit needs and providing a level of cover to suit you, our insurance for residential care is perfect for keeping you and your possessions safe and secure.
