Care Funding Available
These are payments made by Local Councils for people who have been assessed as requiring help from Social Services and who would like to arrange and pay for their own care and support services rather than receiving them from the Local Council directly. You can request a visit from a Social Worker in your area, however, they will be unable to assist with funding if your savings exceed £22,500. Once you have reached this threshold Social Services will assess your needs and fund accordingly.
This is fully funded care for people who do not require care in an NHS acute hospital but who do require high degrees of healthcare. providing your needs satisfy the required criteria you could qualify, however, the largest group who receive continuing care are the elderley. Continuing care is intended to cover the entire costs of all care, including medical, nursing and personal care.
