Self Funding Care
Help self funders understand their self funding care options; understand care funding jargon and help to guide your self funding care actions.
Where a residential home provides personal care only (such as help with washing, dressing and giving medication).
A nursing home provides care that needs to be carried out or supervised by a registered nurse (such as dressings, injections and so on) and must have a registered nurse present at all times.
There are two main types of nursing care:
- homes attended by registered nurses who lead teams of carers
- homes attended by registered mental nurses
When it comes to self funding your nursing care, it is always best to know your financial options. Nursing care can, after all, be very expensive.
You may qualify for help towards funding your nursing care if your assets are below £23, 250. Those who fall above this threshold will be classed as ‘self funders’ and most likely have to pay for all their nursing care fess.
