When considering funding, it’s worth looking into potential benefit entitlements to help you manage costs.
Benefits can be a great help when arranging home care, and are often not affected by income. Some examples include:
Personal Independence Payment can help if you have a long term ill-health or disability. It is for people aged between 16 and State Pension age, and was formerly known as Disability Living Allowance. It is tax-free, and is not dependent on your level of income or savings. PIP is made up of two parts: one for daily living which you can get if you need help with personal care, the other for mobility if you need help getting around.
Attendance Allowance may be suitable if you are State Pension age or older and have a disability or illness which requires personal care, or need someone with you to keep you safe.
If you are an "informal" or family carer spending more than 35 hours a week caring for someone, and earn less than £110 per week, you may be entitled to Carer’s Allowance. It’s important that the person you care for is also receiving benefits. If you don’t qualify for Carer’s Allowance, you may still be able to receive Carer’s Credits.
