Paying for residential and nursing care

What happens after the financial assessment?

The financial assessment will work out how much you need to pay – this is called your assessed weekly charge.

We will also send you a:

  • letter confirming your assessed weekly charge and date your charges start
  • copy of our calculations showing you how we have worked this out
  • declaration for you to sign and return declaring the details are correct and you agree to pay your assessed weekly charge
  • payment schedule

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