Paying for care?

Arranging and choosing care for someone close can be a stressful time, and it can be difficult to access information to help make the right decisions and understand any entitlements you may qualify for.

It’s a topic that we receive regular queries about, so we were pleased to offer the Paying for Care information event on Carers Rights Day in November to address some of these questions.

Specialist advisors gave talks and provided individual advice about ‘self-funding’ care. Over 30 carers attended and told us that they appreciated having access to knowledgeable speakers and a wide range of information all in one place.
