Funding care: A short guide to paying for care
If you are considering arranging care for yourself or a loved one, you should think about how much it will cost and whether you are entitled to any financial support.
We understand that navigating these questions is not simple. With our Funding Care guide, we give you some useful information on:
- Local authority and NHS funding
- State benefits
- Care needs assessments
- Direct payments
- Self-funding your care
Of course, we can’t answer every question you might have in just a few pages - but we hope to give you enough information to at least know what questions to ask, as well as suggestions for where to go for professional financial advice.
