Funding the care of your loved one can be quite complicated, and when done without the necessary process. It is advisable to arrange a free assessment session at your local authority department to get an insight into what your loved one needs and the best way to go about it.
It is equally possible to request for financial assistance through a means-test if you believe that your loved one deserves one and will be eligible for it. Only older people with assets that are less than GBP 23,250 are eligible for financial assistance in care provision cases in the United Kingdom.
If you or your loved one can't afford their dementia care costs, there are some practical ways to bear the expenses, including an equity release scheme or investing in a lifetime annuity.
When it is determined that the live-in care model is perfect for your elderly one, it is best to consult your private care provider on how best to tackle their individual needs and the accompanying costs. At Safehands Live In Care, we provide professional advice on the best way to fund the live-in care cost of your loved ones.
