Funding

Funding your care depends on a combination of your circumstances and your requirements. We can help you to explore funding options. We are happy to visit you in your own home and carry out a no obligation assessment of your needs.

Public Funding Options

There are a number of different public funding options available, which you may qualify for:

  • Direct Payments from Social Services
  • Independent Living
  • Government Funded
  • Continuing Care (Health Funding)
  • State Benefits for part funding (Attendance Allowance or Disability Allowance)

Direct Payments from Social Services

If your local council has agreed to provide funding for a residential home, you can use that money for a live-in care service of your choice instead. The funding allowance depends on your income and savings.

If you currently do not receive funding from your local Social Services department but wish to check if you are eligible, then a financial assessment can be arranged.

Independent Living Funds & Government Funded

Independent Living Funds provide financial support for disabled people between the age of 16 and 65, enabling them to stay in their own home instead of residential care. This funding disregards any earnings, include those of a partner, so you can continue to earn without losing any funding.

Continuing Care (Health Funding)

Individuals who need a high degree of ongoing health care may qualify for Continuing Care. This funding will cover the full cost of care, as if the care was being provided in an NHS Hospital.

State Benefits for part funding

Attendance Allowance may be available to those aged 65 and over who need help with personal care due to a mental and/or physical disability, when their disability is severe enough for them to need help caring for themselves. It is tax-free and is not usually affected by individual savings or income. The amount that the claimant receives will depend on how much their disability affects them.

Disability Allowance

Disability Allowance is similar to Attendance Allowance but for anyone under 65 who have a physical or mental disability who need help with walking or personal care.
