Paying for your own care

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
  • you have been assessed but you are not currently eligible for services
  • you are eligible for services but you have assets or savings over £23,250
  • you have chosen not to declare your finances 

If you go into a care home as a self-funder, you should contact us first. We can still provide an adult care assessment.

You may wish to take legal advice from a solicitor to assist you with any proposed arrangements.
