When you have a social care assessment, we’ll tell you about services which can help you and how you can pay for them, including where you may be able to get help with funding.
You are eligible if all three apply to you:
If your assessment shows that you meet this criteria, we have to make sure your needs are met.
Usually, if you have more than £23,250 in savings or other investments, we’ll ask you to pay the full cost of your care and support services.
This means that you’re a 'self-funder' and you can choose to arrange your own services and support. You can find local care and support services on our My Life Warrington website.
Any money you hold in bank accounts or ISAs, any shares you own, and any cash you have. Any land or property that you own but don’t live in, and any other investments you have, also count.
The property that you live in will only be taken into account if you need to go into residential care.
You may still have to pay towards the cost of your care and support, but you may not have to pay for all of it. To find out whether we can help you with your care costs, we’ll do a financial assessment which looks at your income, savings and capital to work out how much you’ll need to contribute.
Our calculator can help you to find out how much you may need to pay towards your care based on your income, savings and expenses.
