NHS funded Continuing Care
Read up on NHS funded Continuing Care
NHS funded Continuing Care is a payment that elderly people may be eligible to receive if they are required to go into a care home for medical reasons.
The truth of the matter is that, where someone must go into care due to health issues which require constant nursing attention, they are eligible to receive NHS funded Continuing Care, which means they do not cover the fees themselves.
NHS funded Continuing Care is available to anyone who is in care primarily due to health problems. Unfortunately, the assessments for Continuing Care are often poorly conducted, and many elderly sufferers of conditions such as Alzheimer's are mis-assessed and made to pay their own care home fees when they should not have to. This can be disastrous for any savings, finances or properties they may own - especially where the NHS should be footing the bill.
