Here are some common concerns people have about paying for care
Our biggest fear was that we wouldn’t be able to afford to keep him at the care home if his money ran out.
Obviously that’s our inheritance, which sounds really selfish, but mum and dad would be horrified if we spent that money on care.
We still worried like mad about what would happen if we had to sell the bungalow.
Do these look familiar? If so, Care Confidence can help you.
What is a self-funder?
Who is entitled to a free assessment of their care needs from their local council?
As you work through Care Confidence, think about what suits you now, but also what might work best over the coming months and years in case your circumstances change. Whatever your circumstances, it is never too early to get legal advice about Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). This means you can appoint people you trust to make decisions on your behalf if needed.
We’ve designed Care Confidence to help you think through different care options and their possible costs before moving on to thinking about how to pay for care.
