  • Self-Funding: Individuals with assets and income above the threshold are typically required to self-fund their care home costs. This includes using savings, pensions, and potentially the value of their home.
  • Deferred Payment Scheme: Some local authorities offer a deferred payment scheme, allowing you to use your home to help pay for care costs without having to sell it during your lifetime.
