Paying for care

Where to start?

There are many different ways that home care can be funded and the information available can be confusing. The first step to take is to find
out if the person who will be receiving the care is eligible for a local authority funding. If you are not eligible for either local authority or NHS
funding then you will probably need to pay for care yourself and it is a good idea to speak to a financial advisor to ensure you are structuring
your finances in the best possible way.

Paying for home care yourself

Paying for care yourself is very straightforward. We provide you with the assistance that you need and we send you an invoice monthly
which you can pay by cheque, bank transfer or standing order. To give you an idea of how much it costs to receive home care we have put
