After you've had an assessment, if we can help with your care and support we'll write a support plan.
The cost of care and support depends on the care provider, the type of care you need and how much money you have.
If you've had an assessment and we can help with your care and support, we'll tell you the amount of money you'll get towards this. We call this your personal budget.
A direct payment can give you more choice and control over the care and support you get.
You can still get help to pay for a care home if you own a property.
The cost of a care home depends on the care provider, the type of care you need and how much money you have.
When you plan your care and support for now or the future, it may help to speak to a qualified Independent Financial Adviser.
