Funding residential dementia care is a sensitive subject but one that needs broaching before it is needed. By knowing a few facts and where to go for advice means you are heading in the right direction to being prepared.
Care is means tested and in turn you may have to pay for your own dementia care, whether this is through savings, assets and/or benefits. There are a number of different ways to pay for dementia care; through selling a property or by other means:
The local authority pay for your care by putting a charge on your property.
By renting out your property, the rental income pays for your dementia care
Capital is raised by mortgaging your property, which can also mean paying a higher level of interest.
Some of your capital can be used to buy an income to pay for your residential care for the rest of your life. However the cost of the annuity varies from person to person so it is important to find this out.
If you have cash savings in the bank, you pay for your dementia care with these funds.
By investing, you provide an income to pay for your residential dementia care.
