Many people will be entitled to financial support to pay for their care but it is not free to everyone and some people will not be entitled to any financial contribution. Your local Council will carry out an assessment on your needs and depending on the outcome of that assessment, a financial assessment may be carried out.
Local Authority Funding
If you are assessed as being eligible for funding by your local Council, your funding will be provided in one of two ways, depending on your Local Authority:
A personal budgets may be a good option for you if you do not want to take on the responsibilities of a direct payment.
A direct payment gives you the responsibility to employ people or to buy services from registered care agencies. You can get support in managing your direct payment from support officers within the Council.
Social Services Funding
If you receive any form of social care payment such as Disability Living Allowance or Attendance Allowance you can use this funding to pay for your care.
If you are not entitled to any Local Authority or social care payments, you may pay privately for your care. We will talk you through our charges, ensuring you know exactly what you are paying and when. There are no hidden charges with Quality Lifestyle Ltd.
