Funding your own care at home or in a #carehome
Social care helps people to carry out everyday tasks, like washing,
dressing and eating. It might be provided at home or in a residential
care home. Some people will qualify for funding from their council, but
many will end up paying for all of their care themselves. This guide is
intended for people paying for their care, and their friends and family.
It looks at:
- how to get started
- the differences between care at home and care in a care home
- how council assessments work
- ways to pay for your care
- what to do if your financial situation changes.
