Paying for care
Will I have to pay towards my care?
Some people who receive Community Care services will pay the full charge and others will be able to get financial assistance from Midlothian Council.The amount you pay depends on your financial circumstances.
To work out your contribution we need to carry out a financial assessment. We will send you a Financial Information Form.
If you, or your representative, need help to fill in the form you should contact your social worker or phone Loanhead Social Work Centre and a member of staff will be happy to help:
