Have you thought about care needed for a family member or friend, and you would pay for that care? There are options of help from the government to cover the cost of some home care support services, however many service users who use our care support services, do pay for the supporting care services themselves, they are known as being a ‘self-funder’.
The cost of care depends highly on the type of care you need or would like. It also depends on location, specialisation, service provider and duration. These decisions can be a huge financial implication and so it is recommended that you speak to a financial advisor and research other options of alternative before making any decisions.
So, what is a self-funder?
A self-funder is someone who has decided to take on the costs of their own care and support requirements and there could be many reasons for this being the case; you’ve chosen not to approach adult social care support services, you are not currently eligible for Care & Support Services or you have been assessed by the Care & Support Services but have sufficient savings of assets above the self-funding threshold set by the government.
If this is the case and self-funding care is the support you are looking for, then what services are available to you?
