How Much Do Nursing Homes Cost In The UK?
Are you looking to receive further information regarding the cost of nursing homes within the UK? Did you know, that NHS Continuing Healthcare is a funded care package which is provided to those who are a UK resident, aged 18 or above who have been assessed as having a primary health requirement?
This specific funded care package has been available to individuals across the UK although many continue to be told incorrect eligibility criteria. This specific care package has no association with a claimant’s financial assets and neither is it dependent on the location in which the care is provided.
So how much do nursing homes cost? This question will always play on the mind of the individual who requires additional care support as well as their family and loved ones, and the answer is simple. If an individual’s primary need is a health need, they may be entitled to receive funding which could cover 100% of their care costs. Funding is based on the intensity and complexity of 12 key care domains, and an individual who is looking to secure funding will be required to complete a full Continuing Health care Assessment in accordance to the National Framework for Continuing Healthcare. This specific framework was introduced in October 2007 by the Department of Health in the aim of providing clarity and consistency to ensure each claimant has the fair assessment that they deserve.
To be deemed eligible, an individual will be required to show a continuous need for care over the 12 care domains, and here at Continuing Healthcare Direct, we can review your care requirements and determine the eligibility of the individual which will maximise the chances of securing the funding that they rightfully deserve. We offer a FREE appraisal which will allow us to provide you with the advice that you need to determine if you or a loved one may have a strong case in either securing funding, recovering care costs already paid or to dispute a funding decision already made.
