Working out how much you or relative might have to pay if someone needs to go into care can be daunting. The care system is complex and varies according to where you live in the UK. The first step is to understand which broad category you are likely to belong to; Social Care, Medical Care or Self-Funder. Here is a typical case study
If you require some form of social care either at home or in a care home and you have assets above the £23,250 upper limit then you are classed as a Self-Funder.
Self-funding care is a complex matter that requires specialist advice. Carepal has vast experience at handling these cases and no two are the same.
We always recommend that people start the process with our Care Funding Review which runs detailed financial scenarios alonside the specific care needs of the person requiring care.
