Costing / Funding

Funding long term care is a significant consideration for us all and it is an issue we are asked about regularly. Live in care costs are dependent on personal circumstance; there are methods of public funding available for live in care and benefit entitlements are available for many.

Most of our customers fund their care privately or via direct payments, however if you need advice on care funding options we recommend that you speak with a Registered Manager who has knowledge and experience in this area.

Anybody funding their care should first research the benefits that are available to them. Other financing options you may want to consider include equity release or the purchase of an Immediate Care Annuity. We also get asked many questions around Power of Attorney and other asset related matters.

If you or the person you are organising care for has social care needs, you can contact your Local Authority and ask for a financial assessment. Upon completion of this, they will conclude how much money they are responsible for providing to fund your care. Social care funding is means tested, which means that you may have to contribute to or completely pay for the overall cost of your social care.

Once granted, At Home-Specialists in Care can advise on how the social care funding can be used to implement a complete package of person-centred care to enable you or your loved one to remain at home. Providing hourly visiting care, we organise bespoke packages, always remaining mindful of individual budgets and future needs. You can find out more about funding for social care by contacting your Local Authority.
