Charging for residential and nursing care (information and leaflet)

Planning how to pay for care

Accessing quality, specialist financial advice is important to help you plan how you will pay for your care arrangements, both now and in the future.  Paying for care is a long-term commitment and you need to be sure that you can afford the arrangements you put in place.  This means good financial advice and support is key to making the best use of what money you have available.

West Berkshire Council is not able to give you financial advice about your care options - everyone who needs care is encouraged to talk to an independent financial adviser for impartial and specialist support.  The Money Advice Service provide free and impartial advice – use the following link to view the How to fund your long term care – a beginner’s guide webpage.

Further information is available on West Berkshire Council’s ‘Paying for your Care’ webpage where you will find a copy of the Adult Social Care Charging Policy.
