Self-funded Care Solutions

Self-Funding Care Fees

*There are almost 400,000 people in the UK living in residential and nursing care homes. Of these, almost half pay for care themselves and the rest are supported, either wholly or partly, by their local authority or the NHS.

Care homes are paid for in the following ways:

  • Local authority funding: the LA funds some or all of the care. A relative or friend of a resident can also contribute an additional voluntary payment, known as a top-up fee.
  • Self-funding: the person being cared for (or their family or a friend) pays all the costs of their care.
  • NHS funding: in some circumstances the NHS will cover the cost of the care.


Thousands of elderly homeowners may be at risk of dying in their own homes because they can’t afford to pay for Residential Care until they sell their property.

These people are either not eligible for Local Authority or NHS funding due to the value of their assests or because they want to have a choice of the quality of care they'll receive.  However, until their property is sold, which may take some time, they've no other option other than to stay put.
