Carewise - care funding advice

If you are considering a deferred payment agreement or would like to find out more about the different ways to pay for care, the Carewise care funding advice scheme can help. 

Carewise was set up by the County Council, Age UK West Sussex, Brighton and Hove, the Society of Later Life Advisers and West Sussex Partners in Care to offer information and advice on the different care options that are available and the best ways to pay for care. The scheme includes a panel of Carewise-approved independent financial advisers who specialise in providing financial advice about paying for long-term care.

To find out more, visit or contact our Adults’ CarePoint. 

Other information about residential care

You can find more information about choosing residential care in our leaflet ‘Choosing and paying towards care in a residential or nursing home’. Go to ‘Adults’ social care publications’ on or contact Adults’ CarePoint and ask for a copy.

The information in this leaflet is just a guide. It does not replace
independent legal and financial advice or the law. You can get
specific information based on your own circumstances from a
social care worker.

Please contact Adults’ CarePoint for more information.
