Reclaim care home fees
We can help you reclaim your care home fees
Have you seen your savings ruined by the cost of care home or nursing fees? Were your personal savings deemed sufficient to cover the costs of care, only to quickly run out leaving you broke, cap in hand and right back where you started?
You meet the criteria for continuing NHS healthcare and therefore full NHS funding of care home fees if:
- You are discharged from hospital, particularly if it seems a place in a long term care home may be necessary
- You have a swiftly deteriorating medical condition, which may be entering a terminal phase
- Your care needs are being formally reviewed on a regular basis
- Your physical or mental health has deteriorated to the point that your current care package is deemed insufficient
Despite these apparently clear guide lines local authorities in both England and Wales have consistently ruled that claimants in possession of more than £23k in total assets, regardless of their conditions, must pay the full costs of their nursing care home fees.
As care home fees can be as much as £36k per year, those in possession of any savings have quickly seen them run dry.
