C18 - Paying for Home Support Services

If you have the financial resources or your family is able to help, you may choose to pay for the home support services you need.

Pros

Cons

What do I need in order to take this option?

Could this option limit my future choices?

No, but if you move and your needs remain the same, you will have to check whether your home support service provider can work in your new area or could help you find a similar service.

Homework

Investigate whether your region has any services specifically designed to help older people. For example, Age Concern Canterbury coordinates a home support service that assesses providers and brokers lower rates for their members.
