Who pays for your place in a care home?
This will depend on a number of factors and the Health and Social Services staff who assess your needs will advise you, but as a general guide you could be:
- *Fully funded- that is your fees would be met by the NHS or other government sources, but this only occurs in very limited circumstances
- *Self funding- that is you have to pay your own costs
- *Funded with Council Support- you will be funded in part by your local Council. You will be financially assessed to work out how much you can afford to pay towards the cost of your care.
