Paying for care
When you find you need to look for care and support for yourself or a loved one, it’s important to not only know what kind of care and support is available but also how to fund the care required.
So what options are available to you?
Unlike healthcare, social care is not free for everyone. Most people have to pay something towards their own care but it will depend on your needs, the type of care you require and how much money you have.
For those that are eligible there are different types of funding available including local council funding, NHS funding and welfare benefits.
If you are not eligible for government-funded care there are other alternatives options for you to think about when planning how you are going to pay for your care on our self-funding care page.
