Will You Benefit From the Extension of Free Personal Care?
This calculator is designed to help single people under the age of 65 see if they will be better off under the various options for the extension of Free Personal Care to include them.
There are 3 current proposals.
First is a simple zero rating of all personal care hours. Other services are charged for.
Second is that you get your charges reduced by a proportion relating to how much personal care you get compared to other social care.
Third is that you get a Personal Care Rebate equal to the cost of your personal care off your overall charges.
To see how it works enter your weekly income and expense amounts in the calculator or just change the council area to see the difference using the sample data from area to area.
The blue area is the income that you have.
The yellow area is expenditure items.
The pink area concerns that care you receive now and in the future.
