As you and your loved ones grow older it is likely that some kind of care will be required, either at home or in a residential or nursing environment. Whatever the arrangements, these must be funded either privately, by the state, or through a combination of the two.
You will want the best possible care available while making sure that any financial assistance you may qualify for has been considered. It is important to remember that your ability to qualify for funding may not be affected by your level of assets. Funding is not always means tested. Accomplishing this is not easy, and often made harder by the fact you may have to act swiftly – an unexpected spell in hospital may precipitate the need for rapid decisions.
We can give you expert advice that takes the stress out of the situation and achieves the best possible outcome. This includes assessing eligibility for Continuing Healthcare (CHC) Funding, assisting with the process of applying for means-tested Local Authority funding, as well as advising on the best ways to approach self-funding.
Whatever the circumstances, we can provide the support you require, whether that is simply discussing the likelihood of getting financial assistance, guiding you through whatever process is appropriate or challenging incorrect decisions, either retrospectively or ongoing.
