Paying for care and support services
How much will I have to pay for Care and Support services?
The financial assessment will look at your income, savings and any other assets you have.
The amount you'll have to pay, if any, will be calculated according to government guidelines and can take into account certain housing costs and disability-related spending.
If you prefer to make your own care arrangements privately, without help from us, you don't need to have a financial assessment.
Paying for non-residential care and residential care - what's the difference?
The main difference is that:
- For non-residential care, the value of the home you live in is not taken into account when working out how much you'll need to pay for services - more about paying for non-residential care
- For residential care, any property you own will normally be taken into account and included as one of your capital assets - more about paying for residential care
