    Welcome to the community @Snoopy on the AGE UK website it says:  If you are eligible for funding support, your local council could pay some or most of the fees. Your local council will carry out a care needs assessment which includes a financial assessment, called a means test, that looks at your income and savings.

    If you have a significant health care need the NHS may contribute towards the cost of your care. If you’re eligible for NHS continuing healthcare, your care home placement will be free. Read more here.

    You could be entitled to Direct Payments from the Social Services. I use these to pay for my care.
    You`ll need a care assessment and the cost will be means tested.

    Hello @Snoopy
    Your local council can help you. The council will also conduct a assessment to determine what would be best for you too. Call them on Monday. This guide to care services is also useful to read https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/social-care-and-support-guide/
