In a few circumstances personal care can be funded. It’s a good idea to talk to your local council or Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)
to see if you might be entitled to financial support with personal care.
Arranging a carer's assessment
A carer’s assessment is designed to see what might help make your life easier. It’s a chance to discuss your needs with your local council so they can decide how best to support you. If they feel you need support they’ll work with you to put together a care plan, which might include using respite services. Your loved one should also have a needs assessment, which is organised through their local council so extra support can be arranged if appropriate.
If you or your loved one are found to need support, your local council will carry out a financial assessment to discover what you can afford to pay. If you are eligible for financial support to pay for personal care, your local council can arrange these services for you or you can choose to receive direct payments and arrange personal care privately.
You may qualify for funding and it's possible that you or your family member may not need to pay anything at all.
Caremark can accept direct payments for personal care. Please contact your local office
