PayingForCare can help you to navigate through the complexities of:
You may not have to sell your home or use up all of your financial assets to fund your care.
The funding of long-term care is likely to be one of the biggest financial decisions of your life. A lack of planning could result in depletion of your assets and loss of inheritance for your loved ones. If you are already in care, it is not too late. There may be options for you to explore to protect your capital and income.
For residential care -you have assets and income (including your property) greater than £23,250 and are seeking to go into residential care unless your care is temporary or a close relative still lives with you
For care at home - you are seeking care at home support and you have assets or income (excluding your property) greater than £23,250
If you are responsible for paying the full cost of your care, we strongly recommend that you seek specialist information and advice and explore all the care funding options available to you before entering into any arrangements.
