Many people are paying for their nursing home care from their savings or by selling their home. This is despite provision for the NHS to pay for their care.
If you can’t look after yourself at home any longer, your local authority or the NHS should provide your care. If you don’t need nursing care your local authority will carry out an assessment to decide how much you should contribute. Your care will only be fully funded if your assets fall below £23,250. If you need nursing care, the NHS should pay.
