Live in Care Funding & Home Care Funding
It is worth while looking around for sources of care funding. Let's face it, care at home can be expensive, but there are places that help with the financial means to stay independent. It does depend upon why the care is needed, financial means, or the funding available in a certain area.
The Local Authority will provide help with care fees - but not to everyone. If you or a loved one feel or have been told you will need long term care and are wondering how to pay for it, turn first to the local authority to see if there is any financial support available.
There are also other methods of public funding available for care and benefit entitlements that should be explored. But if you or a loved one doesn't qualify for public funding and has to pay for care privately, or simply needs a top up on those benefits, we suggest you speak with a Financial Advisor or Solicitor who has the appropriate care fees financial knowledge and experience. See our Directory for an independent advisor in your area.
