Paying For Care
There are three ways in which care at home is paid for in the UK:

How to pay?
If you qualify for financial support from the local authority to pay all, or part of your care fees, they will pay the agreed amount directly to ENA HomeCare Services. If you plan to partially or totally self-fund your care, you will find our pricing schedule easy to understand, giving you control over the services you pay for.
