announces the launch of the PayingForCare Calculator, a tool which helps citizens:

  • work out how much average care home/nursing fees could be, based on personal circumstances:
  • find out if the state will help pay, based on a short set of questions:
  • by providing relevant information alongside the questions: and
  • by giving them the opportunity to make direct and immediate contact with specialist care fees advisers for personal and detailed financial advice, support and information.

This free tool is a widget, designed to be embedded into Local Authority, care association, care provider and charity websites, amongst others. To register and create a customised calculator widget for your site, go to:

The calculator shown here is live so please feel free to try it out.

"ADASS is pleased to see this information offer which can be simply added to websites and improves the information made available to people about the costs of care."
