Care Home Fees
Paying for care and nursing home costs
Sadly, as we grow older our physical and mental health can deteriorate. These problems can be complex and difficult to cope with at home, so specialised, professional care in a care home is the best solution.
Unfortunately, residential care homes and nursing home are expensive. There have been many situations where elderly and infirm person has lost their house and savings, amassed through a lifetime of hard work, to pay for care home fees.
NHS funding for care homes
If the main reasons for living in a care home are due to medical needs, some or all of the costs may be payable by the NHS Primary Care Trust. The trouble is, most people do not know what steps to take to ensure that they get their entitlement to NHS funding.
