As most people needing residential care will be expected to pay something towards the costs of their accommodation and personal care from their income and capital, it is imperative to have a plan to see exactly how you can achieve this.
Whilst it is possible to gain assistance from the local authority (and possibly the NHS) a large portion of the UK will have to pay for all or a portion of their care fees.
The main worry people have is ‘how long will my money last’ and whether they will have to move to a cheaper care home in the future or alternatively have to ask their closest relations to help out with fees. Another worry is that of leaving an inheritance to loved ones, this can almost be as big a priority as providing for one’s own care for some people.
We offer an initial meeting to discuss your requirements at our expense. We are used to meeting with clients acting under a power of attorney and are happy to meet with any family members you would like to be present.
Following our initial meeting, we will set out how we can help and the cost of our services. Our fees are pre-agreed so there are no surprises.
