Once you have found a provider, you will need to share with them how you will pay. 

Self - Funding : No financial support. You pay for care directly to the provider.

 

Direct Payments : Lets you choose and buy the services you need yourself, instead of getting them from your council. If you want Direct Payments speak with your local authority.

Affexa helps by offering Fixed Cost Care - once you have been assessed you pay one monthly cost.

No shock bills! No Cancellation Fees. Just 

If you receive financial support, you will have had your care needs assessed. This means there will be a recommended care package, giving the basis of such financial support.


This will need to be shared with the home care provider. 

Remember, if things don't work out with a provider, it is your right to change! Whether you receive financial help or not.
