Our new vision
Most people will be expected to pay something towards the costs of their accommodation and personal care from their income and capital. If the local authority is involved in arranging your placement, the amount you will have to pay will be worked out via a means test, which is based on nationally set guidelines.
Our factsheet 'Paying for a permanent care home placement in Wales' provides information on the financial help that may be available from the local authority for people needing care in a care home (residential or nursing home).
