Once it has been agreed that services can be provided by the local authorities or council they will then carry out a financial assessment to work out if you should contribute towards the cost. Again, there is no set- out rules for calculating how many the local authorities or council can charge for services but there is national guidance the council must adhere to.
There are two stages to establishing how much funding might be obtainable for your home care support, the assessment of needs described above and the means test.
If the local authorities or council has assessed your need and qualifying care at home, they can either provide it directly or arrange for it to be delivered through local private or voluntary agencies. Authorities will then work out how much you should contribute towards the heath care cost. Although local authorities or councils have the discretion as to whether to charge for home care services, in practice most will charge.
