A financial assessment is a way of finding out whether you will be able to pay for the support you need, and whether we can offer help towards the cost.
We will carry out a financial assessment following your needs assessment.
The financial assessment will look at:
- your income
- your savings and other funds
- any property you own or may benefit from
We only pay the full amount of a person's care costs in rare and exceptional cases.
You may prefer to get support from a local community group as their services may be free or subsidised.
For information on financial help, go to our page on fairer charging – what you can afford.
