When paying for care for yourself or a family member it is important to understand all the funding options that are available to you to ensure that you make informed decisions about how you fund your care.
A good source of initial information is Age UK's online guide. You may also wish to get information and advice and speak with a specialist care fees adviser.
Researching your options and/or getting some funding advice early on could provide you with peace of mind for the future.
For all customers, we carry out a financial assessment as well as a care assessment. Our customer support adviser will be able to signpost a number of information sources at this point if you need further assistance. Where appropriate, we are also able to support as an advocate for personal budget, direct payments or housing benefit applications.
