Paying for care homes

Paying for care homes is a subject that understandably causes an enormous amount of anxiety and confusion.

Assessments are often undertaken by the NHS and local authorities, following different rules and procedures. Many families are not aware of all the benefits and allowances people living in care homes are entitled to, even if they are self-funding.

In this section, we cover all the key questions and issues around paying for care homes and the cost of care homes. Our advisers have extensive experience of helping people with funding issues, advising on how to address any delays in the process and identifying all the financial help you are entitled to.
