Funding

Although Care in the home is not free, to help you carry on living independently, individuals with limited means may be able to claim financial support through their Local Authority.

To give each customer flexibility, choice and control in the way they are supported, Anyone who is eligible for Local Authority funded Care, can choose to have direct payments and personal budgets. X-Spect Care & Attention can advise on where this help is available.

What contribution will you need to pay towards Care?

The threshold after which you will have to pay for your Care in full is ₤ 23,250 if you live in England. If your assets exceed this amount, which includes investments and most savings, your local authority will consider you able to fully fund your own Care.

For Care within your own home, it is important to remember that the value of your property will not be taken into account.

A Financial Assessment can be carried out to see if you qualify for help towards your Care costs by asking your local council. This assessment will look at your financial means and calculate whether:
The council pays for all of your Care
The council pays for some of your Care and you pay for the rest
You pay for all of your Care
