Do I have to pay for services?
Care and support services are not free to everyone. Most people have to pay something towards their own care. Some will have to pay for all of the costs.
What you have to pay depends on:
- what your needs are, and
- how much money you have, and
- what level and type of care and support you require.
There are different rules for what you have to pay for residential and non-residential care. ‘Residential’ care means the care you get if you do not live in your own rented or owned home.
