This will depend on your individual circumstances. We will complete a financial assessment and work out how much you will be asked to pay depending on the level of income, savings/assets and some expenses that you have. We call this your maximum charge. We will not ask you to pay more than this, and you will not pay more than your services cost.
Below are the maximum costs that you could pay:
- Day centre attendance - £17.50 per day
- Home care - £14.22 per hour
The Government sets a minimum weekly income below which you don’t have to contribute to your care costs, this is to allow for general living costs such as food, fuel, clothing, etc. The level depends on your age and is set at the basic level of Income Support or Pension Guarantee Credit plus 25%.
Any income you have above the minimum weekly income level is counted as being available to you to contribute towards the cost of your care. But we can take into account any additional costs you incur resulting from disability where these can be evidenced.
