Residential Nursing Homes
Have you been forced into paying for a residential nursing home?
Did you know that thousands of elderly citizens who are paying for expensive residential nursing homes should really be receiving free NHS care instead?
Local health authorities all over the country have incorrectly assessed thousands of elderly people and denied them of the free NHS continuing care that they should have been entitled to, forcing them into costly residential nursing homes.
If you suffer from dementia, Alzheimer's disease or any other severe physical or mental disability, then you should be eligible for free continuing care under the NHS.
If, however, your local health authority carried out an incorrect assessment then you may have been made to pay expensive residential nursing home fees out of your own pocket instead.
By law, those with serious health needs should receive full or part funding for continuing care under the NHS.
Many people have already taken their local health authority to task over these mistakes and have received £1000s in residential nursing home fees compensation and given NHS continuing care as a result.
