Paying for care

Paying for care

When you or a family member decides to move into a care home, it can be an emotionally difficult time. While this can be compounded by the number of financial decisions you need to make, planning how to pay for your care home need not be overwhelming.

Clear options

The number of options available can be confusing but by breaking the basics down into manageable chunks you will find the process much less daunting. This ebook aims to help you take that first step by laying out options clearly and concisely.

It will help you understand the costs involved when moving into a care home, your options for payment, and what you need to consider more generally.

Of course, there’s nothing quite like talking your options through with someone - so we have also provided a list of organisations which offer financial advice, as well as others that provide emotional support, which you will find at the end of this guide.
