Why you need to plan
How to start planning
It's never too early to start planning for your future care needs.
Our top ten things to think about will help you to plan your future care, even if you don't need support at the moment.
If you have had a care needs assessment, we can look at the kind of help you need to live your life as independently as possible.
Following your assessment we will tell you how much the help you need will cost. A financial assessment will be carried out to work out how much you can afford to pay towards the cost of your care. We will tell you how much money we will pay; most people also have to pay something towards their care.
