Helping with Funding:
Sorting out funding for care can be confusing and frustrating. If you do need to go into a residential home, or you need support at home, there are many ways that you might be able to get help towards paying all or some of the fees. The Local Authority may pay some of the cost and you may be able to claim extra Social Security benefits. The weekly charge payable by you personally will depend on your own financial circumstances (i.e. how much savings or income you have and whether you own your own home).
Our team at our Sheffcare Head Office have many years experience in navigating the maze of local authority funding criteria and will be happy to talk with you and advise you as to your options. Any discussions will, of course, be in the strictest confidence. Please call our Resident Finance team on 0114 2808880 or 2808872 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
