Care Reforms - Top ups

Currently, a person receiving state-funded care may choose for a third party such as a relative to make additional payments for a preferred choice of accommodation or care arrangement if it is more expensive that the local authority rate. Government therefore intends to change the regulations to enable everyone receiving local authority financial support to fund such top-ups for their own care. These top-up payments, on top of the cost specified in someone’s personal budget or independent personal budget, will not count towards the cap and will still be payable by the person once the cap has been reached.
