The establishment of the universal deferred payment scheme ensures that people should not be forced to sell their home in their lifetime to pay for their care. By entering into a Deferred Payment Agreement, a person can ‘defer’ or delay paying the costs of their care and support until a later date. This can enable people to delay the need to sell their home as they make the transition into care.
This policy lays out how deferred payments will be offered within the Borough of Poole.
