Local Authority funding
Are you, or a loved one, in residential care or considering it as an option? The issue of funding is not only crucial but complex. Our legal experts can assess whether this care will have to be self-funded or whether the Local Authority should pay some or all of the fees. In some cases, you or your relative may be eligible for Continuing Healthcare (CHC) Funding.
If you or your relative has to pay for all or some of the care we can help relieve the financial worries. We can advise on the Deferred Payment Scheme and the issue of Property Disregards – by making use of these options we can remove any immediate pressure to dispose of property and other assets.
We suggest seeking our professional advice at the earliest stage, certainly before any discussions on funding care begin. We also urge you to seek advice before signing any documentation.
