Paying for care can be incredibly expensive.   As you may have read elsewhere on the Seatons Care Fees pages, if you have assets worth more than £23,250 in England you will be classed as ‘self-funding’ and be responsible for the full cost of your care.  These can be substantial – once you have fallen below this threshold, you will still have to contribute to the cost of your care until you fall below £14,250.00 – and possibly even below this threshold if you have income.

A report by healthcare specialists Laing and Buisson (2013/14) and depending on where you live, care home costs can average in the region of £29,270 per year for a residential care home which rises to £39,300 if nursing is required.

BUT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO AVOID PAYMENT IF YOU QUALIFY FOR NHS CONTINUING HEALTHCARE FUNDING

NHS CHC Healthcare funding is an award of funding for an Applicant’s full care needs.  No ‘top ups’ to the funding can be charged and the funding applies to care home fees or the costs of carers where the Applicant remains in their own home.

The application process is not straight forward and in many cases the assessment process is flawed and decisions not to fund are unjust and inappropriately arrived at.
