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)
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.
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 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.
