Don’t Worry About The Care Home Cost!
One in six people over the age of 85 live in a care home, and with the increase in life expectancy more people are in need of more specialised care.
The care home cost in the United Kingdom are on the rise. Many of the care home residents are vulnerable, mentally and or physically. And with nearly one in ten care homes only giving a week’s notice when care home fees rise, this affects more that 22,000 older people.
Many people in the UK are being forced to hand over their life savings , with one in ten entering the care home system having to pay over £100,000 in care home fees!
It’s worrying. Most people have not heard of the NHS funded care package that is available not just to the elderly but anyone above the age of 18 who is a UK resident and has a primary health care requirement.
If you or a loved one fits this criteria you may be eligible for 100% care funding for your care homes costs. Funding is available for the eligible who is looking to stay in their own home and receive the necessary report or in a care home. The funding is not dependent on an individual’s asset, it is only dependent on primary health requirement of an individual.
Continuing Healthcare is the NHS funded package of care that has been available for thousands of people in the United Kingdom. If you are looking to find out if you or a loved one is eligible, please contact a member of our funding experts at Continuing Healthcare Direct on 0800 049 2062.
