Care can be expensive. Most people pay some, or all, of their care costs themselves.
If you have investments and/or savings above £23,250 you will pay the full cost for your care. This is known to us as a ‘Self-funder’.
If you have savings between £14,250 and £23,250 we may be able to make a contribution to your care fees. This will be looked at as part of the financial assessment however we may be able to reduce the fee you pay. If you are going into a permanent residential care, the value of your house is usually taken into account too.
You will have many questions in relation to charging and it can be overwhelming.
