If you are paying the full cost of your social care, you are known as a self-funder. This means that either:

  • you have chosen not to approach adult social care for help

  • you have been assessed but you are not currently eligible for adult social care

  • you are eligible for services, but your savings are above £23,250

You can choose and pay for the kind of services you feel you need.
