Paying for care at home

What happens after the financial assessment?

We will calculate the maximum amount you may need to pay – this is called your maximum assessed weekly contribution. The actual amount you pay will depend on the cost of your care (your personal budget) in relation to your maximum assessed weekly contribution. You will pay either your maximum weekly contribution or the cost of your care, whichever is the lower amount.

We will send you:

  • a copy of our calculations showing you how we have worked this out
  • a form which you need to sign and return to us, declaring that the details are correct and that you agree to pay your assessed weekly contribution.

If the financial assessment shows that you have savings and investments over the upper capital limit you will have to pay the full cost of any care services you receive.
