Funding Advice

Choosing the right care home involves considering important aspects, such as funding yours or a loved ones care. At Meallmore, we understand the significance of understanding and navigating the financial aspects of care. Our team is here to provide you with guidance and support on funding alternatives for your care needs.

Funding Advice
Needs Assessment

Establishing the right care type.

If you or a loved one are over the age of 65, you are entitled to a free needs assessment from your local council. This assessment serves as a valuable tool in determining the type of care required, potential financial support, and guiding you in selecting the ideal care home.

Even if you believe you may not be eligible, we encourage you to contact your local council or support groups like Age Scotland for more information. A needs assessment can simplify the process of choosing the right care.

Funding Care.

At Meallmore, we understand that funding care is a personal responsibility. After applying for a needs assessment, you may find that you or your loved ones are eligible for financial support from your local council. The amount of support varies based on factors such as your assets, including property and savings, dependency status, and location.

In certain cases, your family and friends may also be able to assist in covering the full cost of care fees. Navigating the process of arranging care fees can be challenging and confusing. Reach out to your loved ones for support, and don't hesitate to contact us to learn more about fees and payment options available.

Seeking Additional Support.

Our team at Meallmore is ready to help you navigate the complex process of financing care. Please reach out to get more information regarding care home fees and payment options.
