How to Finance Your Care
At Care 4U Services, we understand that securing financing for your care needs can be a concern. We're dedicated to making the process as straightforward and flexible as possible. Here's a breakdown of our payment options and how we can assist you in making the right financing choice:
Private Payment Options
Several funding avenues are accessible, each varying based on individual eligibility and needs. You might qualify for multiple funding types, some of which are means-tested, while others are unconditional.
Local Authority Support
Eligible individuals may receive funding assistance for social care. For guidance and eligibility criteria, please connect with your local authority.
Once assessed and approved, a Personal Budget dedicated to your essential care needs will be allocated. Local Authority funding predominantly covers basic necessities, allowing you the flexibility to enhance your care plan by financing additional services personally.
Disability and Health Condition
Persons living with disabilities or specific health conditions, aged 16 to 64, may qualify for a Personal Independence Payment (PIP), assisting with extra costs related to long-term illness or disability.
Additional Financial Assistance
For individuals over 65 and living with a disability, Attendance Allowance (AA) is available, aiding in managing personal care needs.
Individual Service Funds (ISF)
ISFs are tailored for individuals preferring not to manage their Personal Budgets directly. A preferred service provider, like Care 4U Services, can manage these funds, ensuring that you maintain decision-making authority over the expenditure aligned with your care.
Crafting Your Personal Support Plan
Your unique needs and goals shape the creation of a Personal Support Plan, devised in collaboration with your chosen service provider to realize the outcomes you desire.

Personal Budget Essentials
Personal Budgets are provisions for individuals assessed with care needs. They can be received as Direct Payments or channeled through an Individual Service Fund (ISF).
Diversified Budget Options
Individual Budgets, akin to Personal Budgets, are formulated from various sources and are designed for individuals with disabilities residing at home.
Direct Payments empower you to autonomously manage and allocate your personal budget for care services and essential equipment. This flexibility allows for a personalized approach in selecting services that resonate with your unique care needs, ensuring a harmonized support ecosystem cultivated by Care 4U Services.
