Prepare to live better

It's never too early to start planning your future care.

Not everybody is entitled to funding from the council. Even if you do, the amount you get may not be enough to completely cover the cost of your care. Before you develop care needs you should think about how you are going to pay towards your care costs or even pay for it all yourself.

Planning for your future - top ten tips

Events near you

Our Prepare to Live Better campaign aims to educate people about the changing landscape of adult social care and encourage you to prepare for future care needs for you and your loved ones.

We'll be visiting towns across Dorset over the coming months. Drop in to see us an event near you where we'll test your knowledge with a fun quiz, share information and talk to you about how to plan for the future.
