FUNDING YOUR CARE
We understand that paying for care is not an everyday expense, so we’ve made our payment options and billing process convenient and easy to adapt to.
Our billing is based on hourly rates, with the rate varying for bank holidays and evening & weekends. Please contact us for more details on pricing.
When you sign up for service with us, you have the option to pay by direct debit. Billing is every two weeks, with statements available online for you to view at any time.
You may be eligible to receive help with funding your care from the Government. You have the right to request a free care assessment from your local Social Services department; this can include a community care assessment and a means-tested financial assessment to see if you are eligible to receive support with the cost of your care.

Independent Living Fund
Funded by Central Government, the Independent Living Fund supports people with disabilities to live independently in their own homes, rather than in residential care.
Payments are made to people with disabilities so they can afford the employment costs, or associated employment costs, of a personal assistant or care agency to provide the support they need to remain living at home.
There are many things which the fund cannot be used to pay for, to understand what cannot be paid for with the fund; you can read more on www.dwp.gov.uk/ilf/
Should you not be eligible for public funding, or would simply prefer to fund your care privately, you will need to source your care independently. Faced with so many different options and conflicting information, this can become both a time-consuming and overwhelming task.
If you are looking for support with financial planning, we would recommend that you contact an impartial Financial Advisor specialising in Care Fees. They can discuss options such as:
• Equity Release
• Funding Care fees
• Estate preservation
• Wealth Preservation
