Deferred payments

An arrangement with the local authority that enables people to use the value of their homes to help pay care home costs. If an adult is eligible, the local authority will help to pay care home bills on their behalf. The adult can delay repayment until they choose to sell their home, or until after their death. The local authority may charge interest on the amount owed to them, and there may be a fee for making the arrangement to cover costs.
