Guidance on charges for home care services
Paying towards the cost of social care for adults living at home.
The government has produced guidelines that all councils in England must follow when charging for non-residential care. These 'Fairer Charging' guidelines ensure that all councils follow the same rules so that all service users are assessed in the same way. In Bexley, Social Services and the Financial Assessments and Benefits (FAB) service work together to ensure that we provide appropriate care for you and charge you in accordance with the government's guidelines.
We hope that this document tells you everything you need to know about charging for non-residential care, how we calculate your contribution and what your next steps may be.
