How to fund your care for the care of a loved one
The care system in the UK can be difficult to navigate. It occupies a space between various departments at both local and national government level, the NHS and private organisations. They are all linked (although not as well-linked as they could be sometimes) and it can be difficult to know where to start.
We at Good Oaks are often asked about funding options for both homecare and live-in care. We’ve put together a library of easy to access information on this website. Often, the best place to start is a carer’s assessment by your local council. They have an obligation to provide an assessment, even if you won’t be eligible for any state funds. They should be able to signpost you to other useful organisations and resources.
