Get help at home

You may be able to get help in your own home if you have a disability or illness or because you’re unable to do some things for yourself any more.

What help you can get

 

If you have more than £23,250 in savings and assets (£46,500 for a couple) you’ll have to pay the full cost of the long-term help you get at home.  Find private care providers.

You'll also have to pay £236 per year for the council to arrange your care.

You may be able to get help at home if you’re 18 years old or over and live in Leicestershire. We can also help you if you’re a carer.
