Charges for non-residential care services
We want to help you live in your own home for as long and as independently as possible. To do this we have a range of non-residential help and support available, such as:
- Direct payments
- Going to day centres
How much do these services cost?
We may charge a fixed rate or carry out a financial assessment to work out how much you will have to pay for services such as:
- Independent Living Services including Homecare Support (personal care), Domiciliary Care (practical support and domestic services) and Outreach Services/Community Access
- Day care (excluding day care as part of your residential care package)
- Transport we provide
- Services provided via a personal budget, including those paid through a direct payment.
Some people may be exempt from charges, there is more information on exemptions on the next page.
How are services provided?
We provide the services through a personal budget to give you more control over the support you get. You will be able to choose from a variety of services that are tailored to meet your needs.
Will I have to pay?
If you get our support you may have to make a contribution towards the cost of your services
We will ask you to complete a financial assessment form giving details of your income and savings. We will then work out whether you have to pay a contribution and how much. We explain how we do this on page 3 How we work out what you will pay.
