A Guide to Paying for Care

This Guide to Paying for Care is intended for anyone who is in care or about to enter care, or for those acting on behalf of someone who is. It can be a daunting and emotional time and so having access to the right information and advice is extremely helpful.

If you are moving into a care home or having to meet the costs of care for the first time, or if you are arranging this for a relative, it is possible that you haven’t received any clear guidance about your funding options or the benefits that you may still be able to claim.

You may be worried about what the cost will be, or what would happen if you ran out of money while you are still in care. You probably won’t know how long you will need care for, or what the final bill will be, and this can be a cause of unnecessary worry for you and your family.
