Long Term Care Planning

Once an individual moves permanently into residential care, social services will carry out a financial assessment to decide to what extent, if at all, they will have to contribute towards the cost of that care. The financial assessment will consist of them looking at a person’s capital (eg, property, savings and investments) and income (eg, pension and state benefits). Many people worry about being forced to sell their home and, under current guidelines, if you have capital above £23,250 you will have to pay all your own care fees.

The rules surrounding paying for long term care are long and complex, but we can advise you on planning for your future and make sure you are aware of all your options.
