Live-In care costs
Care finance can be the most challenging part of arranging support for a loved one and it can be difficult to find the answers to questions that you will have. Our founder Geoff talks about some of the key areas of care finance and where to find more information about them.
Carehome costs have risen significantly in the last 10 years with residential care-home costs skyrocketing due to the increased costs of providing support and the cost of property.
When you are thinking about care for yourself or a loved one, finance is one of the first and most important questions that arises. Care can be expensive and understanding all your options is an important first step.
Some families are entitled to support from their council or Local Authority. Funding is either in the format of care delivered through their preferred suppliers or Direct Payments where you can make the decisions on who provides care.
Continuing Healthcare (CHC) is funded by the NHS to ensure that people with complex care needs who are living at home get the right level of support. CHC is available to every family as it is not means tested, but does require an eligibility assessment.
For many families, their home is the only available source of funds to pay for care. Lifetime mortgages enable you to unlock funds without selling the house, however they are complicated and should only be taken out with suitable advice.
Even if your loved one is entitled to financial support, this may not cover all of the care costs for certain services. Families can provide additional funds or Top-up to cover the gap, ensuring they get the care that is right for them.
We believe in a fairly priced service that ensures our Carers gets paid a living wage and families avoid having to pay inflated carehome fees.
