Planning for care costs is something you may have little experience of, which is why it can be helpful to learn what funding options are available to you.
When you make your decision, you can rest assured that Bupa care homes cover everything from 24 hour nursing care, utility bills, daily activities and home cooked meals for all of our residents. There are also a number of additional treatments available which will be charged for separately, including physiotherapy, speech therapy and aromatherapy, ensuring we cater for a wide range of needs.
We interviewed Nicky Cave from our partner Eldercare, an expert in providing advice about paying for care, to explain the choices available to you and recommend any other options you may have. Watch the video below.
A means test is an assessment by your local authority to discuss your personal circumstances and work out what contributions they can make, if any, to assist you with your care needs.
During the assessment, we recommend that you are completely honest about your personal situation, so that your local authority can make a fair assessment and offer you the best help based on your circumstances.
Once the assessment has been made, your local authority will recommend what kind of care you will require and what contributions they can make to assist you. This differs from person to person, depending on the situation.
Are you still unsure about your personal circumstances? You can speak to one of our helpline experts who will discuss your options with you.
Your local authority can arrange an assessment if they are likely to be paying or you can contact your local care home to arrange an assessment and find out how much care will cost you.
