Researching these options can be beneficial, potentially offering financial assistance to those in need. We recommend researching to see if you are eligible for any of the following options.

NHS Continuing Healthcare

Healthcare funding involves the financial support extended by the government to the NHS for individuals requiring healthcare services. You might qualify for NHS Continuing Healthcare funding if you require live-in care due to a long-term condition. This funding, facilitated by your local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), covers the entire cost of your live-in care if approved.

Attendance Allowance

This funding aims to support individuals who are aged 65 and over who need assistance with personal care due to illness or disability. It’s a non-means-tested benefit, meaning eligibility isn’t determined by your income or savings. The amount you receive is based on your care needs, with a maximum of £92.40 per week.

Equity release

Equity funding allows homeowners aged 55 and above to access a portion or all of their property’s accrued value without having to sell or relocate. If you’re financing your own care, this option allows you to tap into equity in your home to cover expenses. It’s advisable to consult with a specialist before exploring this option.
