Care Fees - Council and NHS Funding

The cost of residential and nursing care can be extremely expensive, especially without the guidance of a legal expert.

The average costs are £500.00 per week, but can easily exceed £1000.00 per week in some areas.  

This is why it is important to be aware of funding options via the Council and NHS.

When income and capital fall below a certain threshold, the Council can contribute to your care.

It is also important to be aware that in some circumstances, regardless of means, the NHS must fund the cost of care.

This is known as ‘NHS Continuing Healthcare’.  The NHS can even fund care retrospectively after a person has passed away.  

Retrospective claims can still be made back to April 2012 for any periods in care which were not assessed at the time.
