Paying for care
Paying for care
If you need social care services, you may have to pay for them or at least make a payment towards the cost. So it's worth thinking about how you will pay. You can get advice about paying for care from many places, including many charities. If you have an assessment of your care and support needs, you will also have a financial assessment to work out what you can afford to pay. Some people with care and support needs may be able to get benefits like Attendance Allowance.
