Advice on paying for care

You may want to get independent financial advice to help you plan for the cost of care and understand the options available to you.

There are different organisations and services that can give you general financial advice, including local and national charities.

When choosing an adviser make sure:

  • they are qualified and experienced in the type of advice you need
  • you know how the advice is paid for
  • you know what the cost is and what’s included in the cost
  • that you fully understand the terms of any agreement with the adviser
