paying for Care

Where to start?

There are many different ways that home care is funded and the journey through the funding maze can sometimes be very confusing.

The first step to take is to find out if the person who will be receiving the care is eligible for local authority funding. The current thresholds for eligibility can be found on the finance section of the First Stop website:

If you are not eligible for local authority funding then you might still be eligible for NHS Continuing Health Care Funding if you have ongoing healthcare needs.

If you are not eligible for either local authority or NHS finding then you will probably need to pay for care yourself and it is a good idea to speak to a financial advisor to ensure that you are structuring your finances in the best way possible.
