Calculate your care costs

You can use our Care Cost Calculator to find out what you might need to pay towards your social care.

Your results should be used for guidance only, and are based on the information you've entered. The actual amount you're asked to pay may be different after a full financial assessment. 

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. 

Residential care is care that you get if you are living in a residential or nursing care home.

Non-residential care is any other care and support services that you may be getting if you are not living in a residential or nursing care home.

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

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 give you links to information, tools and services that may be useful for you.

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