In a few circumstances elderly care can be funded. It’s a good idea to talk to your local council to see if you might be entitled to financial support with elderly care.
Arranging a carer's assessment
Arranged through your local council, a carer’s assessment
is designed to see what might help make your life (caring for your loved one) easier. It’s a chance to discuss your needs with your 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
(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 elderly care, your local council can arrange these services for you, or you can choose to receive direct payments and arrange elderly care privately.
Caremark can accept direct payments
for elderly care. Please contact your local office
