Self funding

Our service users pay for their care and support in many different ways. You may benefit from Local Authority funding depending on your circumstances, or you may need, or wish to pay for the care and support yourself.

Many of our service users do both; they receive local authority funded support and ‘top up’ the support they receive by paying for the little extra things themselves that their Local Authority does not provide, yet these extra things can greatly enhance quality of life.

You may wish to spread the cost amongst the family, with siblings for example – in this case, we are able to ‘split the bill’ between family members to make things easier.

Some of our privately paying customers who are over 65, claim Attendance Allowance which is non-means tested and can be used to pay for home care.

Your local team can offer guidance about your funding options as well as local information about your Local Authority.
We will provide a free, no obligation assessment. Our prices include:


  • Delivery of all specified and agreed services within your support plan

  • Fully trained and enhanced CRB checked support teams
  • Home Risk Assessment and report

What our service users say about us

Our flexible and unique approach to homecare service will enable you to receive the extra help and support you need in the comfort of your own home

Chelmscare has been amazing with my husband who was a cancer patient. I couldn’t have asked for a better care company to have provided care for him. They are the type of company who don’t see caring as a job but as a duty of care. “.


The Care Manager has gone above and beyond his job description for us to ensure that my children don’t miss out on school. I now have a PA from Chelmscare to enable my family to have good continuity of care”.


The care Chelmscare provide is second to none and they are so willing to help. It would be difficult to pick up one person to praise”.
