Paying for Home Care

Who pays for my Home Care Services?

The Cost of Your Home Care will depend on whether it is provided privately, by social services or by the NHS, as well as other factors, such as the number of hours, the number of staff required and which local authority funds your care. 


Funding Options 

Self Funding or Privately Funded - Home Care Services such as personal care, home help, respite care or companionship are funded totally by yourself. You can find your carer privately or use a company such as Premier Community.


Fully Funded - Home care services such as personal care and respite care are funded jointly by yourself and social services. Social Services will decide if the care is Fully Funded using a Means Test and Needs Assessment, considering your income and savings. 

 

Part Funded - Home care services such as personal care and respite care are funded jointly by yourself and social services. Social Services will decide if the care is Part Funded using a Means Test and Needs Assessment, considering your income and savings. 

 

NHS Services - This is usually personal care and respite care, in the circumstances requiring specific nursing skills, and the Health Authority fully funds this. However, in some situations, the personal care funding will be divided between the NHS and the Local Authority; you may need to contribute to the social services element.
