Easing the worry of paying for care

If you’re looking for a residential care home in West Sussex, either for yourself, or on behalf of someone else, it’s vital that you seek specialist, independent advice before deciding how you will pay the care home fees.

Most people will have researched, visited and compared different care homes to make sure they select the most suitable option. It is equally as important to get specialist financial advice to make sure you can afford the care home costs for as long as it is needed.

As a West Sussex resident, you could be looking at care home costs of up to £1500, depending on your individual needs and the care home. Seeking specialist advice on paying for care home costs could make all the difference.

Which? recommend that people seek specialist financial advice on how to pay for their care from advisers who are members of SOLLA (Society of Later Life Advisers). SOLLA advisers specialise in later life financial planning and receive extra training and professional development in this area.

Carewise - advice on paying for care 

West Sussex County Council together with expert partners including SOLLA, Age UK West Sussex, and West Sussex Partners in Care, introduced Carewise, a care funding scheme, to provide information and advice on the most cost-effective way of paying for care. Carewise offers a panel of care fees specialists based in or near West Sussex who can advise you on the most suitable way of paying for care, based on your individual situation.
