Paying for residential and nursing care

If you have had a social care needs assessment and are eligible for care and support services, we will discuss how your needs can best be met.

This could be through care and support in a care home setting, such as:

  • a residential home which provides social care and support
  • a nursing home which provides health care, and social care and support

Unlike health services, adult social care and support services are not free of charge and most people have to pay something towards the cost of their care.

We will do a financial assessment to work out how much you will need to pay towards the cost of your care. This is a proportionate and fair assessment of your financial circumstances which won’t charge you more than you can afford to pay.
