Paying for a care home

Care home fees in Dumfries and Galloway can range from £525 to £800 a week. All potential care home residents will be expected to pay towards their fees but financial support may be available depending on your individual circumstances.

If you are looking for support from us then we'll carry out a financial assessment to work out whether you're able to contribute to the cost of your care and support package as well as how much you need to contribute. The assessments look at a number of important elements, including:

  • income (such as benefits and pensions)
  • outgoings (such as mortgage, rent and council tax payments)
  • capital (such as savings, bonds and stocks)

You'll need to pay the full cost of your care and support package if you're self-funding, come through us but don't want to provide financial information or have significant savings and investments.
