Paying for support

If you are 18 or older you may have to pay for your support. This will depend on:

  • Your income and savings.
  • If you have nursing care.
  • If you own your own home.
  • If you live with someone else.

The amount you pay will depend on the support you get. It will depend on whether you get support in your own home, are living in a residential home or in a nursing home. 


Paying for care in the community

If you get help at home, such as homecare, or in the community, such as a day support service, you may need to pay towards the cost.


Paying for residential care

If you move into a residential care home or nursing home you may need to pay towards the cost of your care.


Paying for nursing care in the community
