We recognise that it can be a challenge to accept help at home, but having someone around can maintain your independence. Live-in care is often more cost effective than people imagine, especially if a high level of support if required. It also offers increased flexibility as the daily routine is built around you rather than the time a pop in carer is able to attend.
There may be some financial assistance available to help with the cost. Attendance Allowance is available to anyone over the age of 65 who requires help with personal care; it is not means tested and is tax free. NHS Continuing Care Team can finance care if the needs meet their criteria. For further information on funding your care, please click the following links:
