Spotlight on paying for care
There are policies and grants available to help people and their support networks pay for care.
- Adult Care Charging Policy - a fair way of charging adults who receive care and support services.
- Carers' Personal Budgets Policy - support for carers to have a break and have greater choice and control.
- Deferred payment scheme - for people who need residential care and are unable to pay because their property hasn't yet been sold.
- Disability Related Expenditure (DRE) - if you're entitled to disability care benefits, you may be able to claim money spent on items and services to help you manage your disability or long-term health condition.
- Disabled Facilities Grants - practical help and support to enable elderly and disabled people to remain independent in their homes for as long as possible.
