Home Care For The Elderly
Are you paying for home care for the elderly?
Fulltime home care for the elderly can be an expensive proposition. But did you know that anyone in the UK diagnosed with a severely debilitating mental or physical health issue is entitled to NHS funded care regardless of your income or savings? Alzheimer's and dementia both qualify as severely debilitating in their advanced stages.
Your local authority decides who is entitled to subsidized home care for the elderly based upon a set of guidelines that leave room for subjective interpretation.
Could you be paying for the costs of home care for the elderly unnecessarily?
