Care Costs Calculator

Help to plan ahead in five short steps

This calculator can help you to understand how much may be needed to cover the cost of care in a care home. It only takes a few minutes to complete, and you can complete it for yourself, or on behalf of someone else. If you’re completing this for someone else, please give answers related to them.

Please note that the Care Costs Calculator is primarily designed for users where the person requiring care is living in England. If you live in Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland, we suggest speaking to the Legal & General Care Concierge service on 0800 086 9071 – quoting “Independent Age” when you call.

This calculator is not a substitute for advice about your individual situation.
