Confused by care funding?

If you are confused by care funding options for an older relative or friend's care, our guides and factsheets can help.

Our guides explain the system for funding care when moving to a care home and when a third party, such as a relative, friend or charity, may have to pay a top-up for your relative to stay in the care home of their choice.
