If you have capital of less than £14,250, the Local Authority will make their maximum contribution. If you are in a private home and your capital falls below this limit, the maximum may not cover all of your fees and your family or another source may need to pay a top-up or alternatively you may be required to move into a different home. If you have capital over £23,250 you are responsible for funding your own care. If you have capital in between these two limits the financial assistance will be provided by the Local Authority on a sliding scale, depending on the value of your capital. The Department for Work and Pensions may also be able to assist.
