If you're moving into a residential home or a nursing home, you might be worried about the cost. We'll make sure you only pay as much as you can afford.
First, we'll work out the total cost per week of the care you need. Then we'll work out how much you can afford to pay towards the cost of your care.
If you're getting nursing care, this will be paid for by the NHS. But you'll still have to pay towards the cost of staying in the nursing home.
We use the Department of Health guidelines on charging for residential care to work out the cost of your care. These apply to all councils. You can find out more in the legislation (The Care and Support (Charging and Assessment of Resources) Regulations 2014).
