Everyone will have to pay something towards the cost of living at one of our schemes, but how much will depend on your assessed financial position.

The costs of living in an Assisted Living scheme include:

* Rent and service charge – how much you pay depends on your eligibility for housing benefit, but you are still likely to have to pay something towards the service charge even if you get full housing benefit.

* Care costs – your contribution will depend on your financial assessment.

* All other bills that people have to pay in their own homes such as gas, electricity and council tax.

We will help you make sure that you claim all the benefits that you are entitled to. For a full cost breakdown, please refer to the inserts at the back of the scheme brochure.
