If you are paying the full cost of your care, you are known as a self-funder. This means that:
- you have chosen not to approach adult care for help
- or, you have been assessed but you are not currently eligible for services
- or, you are eligible for services but you have assets or savings over £23,250
If you go into a care home as a self-funder, you should contact us first. We can still provide an adult care assessment.
For more advice, find and speak to an independent social worker.
