We know that funding care can be very difficult for some, however, there are a number of support schemes that can assist in the funding of care. Some potential support methods are outlined below. If any of these seem to be relevant to you, please seek professional advice on how you can benefit from this support.
Attendance Allowance helps with extra costs that are caused by a disability severe enough that you require assistance with daily tasks. More information on Attendance Allowance can be found here.
Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
PIP can help with extra living costs if you have a long-term physical or mental health condition or have difficulty doing everyday tasks or getting around due to your condition. More information on PIP can be found here.
If you get help from social services, you can apply for direct payments. These allow you to choose and buy services that you need, instead of getting them from your council. More information on direct payments can be found here.
Free NHS Support
The NHS can provide support for people including free equipment and home adaptations, benefits, and other assistance. More information on free NHS support can be found here.
