Planning ahead for your future
The future can be difficult to predict. However, shifting demographics and rising life expectancy means that increasing numbers of us may have to rely on nursing and residential care in the future.
State funding is limited to those who need it most, and you may be concerned – as many people are – about your ability to pay for your future care home costs. If you need residential care, all of your income (pensions, interest on savings, dividends, etc.) apart from a small amount would be used to pay the care home costs.
You would also have to pay the extra amount from your capital, until it is reduced to the upper limit when Local Authority help is available.
