NHS Continuing Care funding
The advice you need on NHS Continuing Care funding
NHS Continuing Care funding is assistance with care home fees which is provided by the NHS in situations where an elderly individual is required to go into care due to health issues which mean that they require round-the-clock nursing.
This can be a great benefit as otherwise the individual in question would have to fund their care themselves, and the costs of such a thing can be truly immense without the help of NHS Continuing Care funding.
NHS Continuing Care funding is supposed to be available to anyone who will require specialised medical care which cannot be provided by social services, in situations where this is the main reason for the requirement that they go into care. Unfortunately, many people are mis-assessed and left forced to pay for their care home fees out of their own pockets - which drains savings and often necessitates the sale of the family home.
If you have a loved one who has had to move into a nursing home for health reasons, and yet has been assessed as being ineligible for NHS Continuing Care funding, you may be able to set things right.
