Calculate your care costs

Find out what you might need to pay towards residential and non-residential social care using our cost calculator.

Before you start

You’ll need the following information about the person you’re doing a calculation for:

  • Date of birth
  • Number of dependent children
  • Savings
  • Value of any property and land owned
  • Income
  • Housing costs 

How it works

This tool can be used by anyone as a guide for how much residential and non-residential care costs could be in Suffolk. 

Non-residential care is when you receive care in your own home.

Residential care is when you receive care in a different setting, e.g. a care home.

It takes about 5 minutes to fill out the calculator form.  

If you have care from an After Care Plan, or though Continuing Health Care (CHC), we will cover all costs of your care.

Please note costs calculated are for guidance purposes only.

What happens next?

Once you've received your care cost estimates we suggest you save the results by printing the page or writing them down. 

We will then provide guidance about what to do next. This will include links to information, tools and services that may benefit you. 

You can do a new calculation at any time, for as many people as you need to.
