The Care Planning Process can be very complex as all Care Plans are unique to the circumstances of the individual involved. Many people are surprised that the NHS does not automatically cover care fees as there are many rules to regulate this matter. The NHS is only legally obliged to fully fund care costs if the individual has a primary healthcare need. Furthermore, the government may expect you to fund your care with your current pension, benefits, and in some cases, the value of your home. It is not a very straightforward procedure and it is advisable that you seek legal advice when making plans for care fees.
At Bloomsbury Law, we appreciate that this may be confusing. The law regarding Care Plans may not be as clear as you would expect and many people are under a false pretence that Care Fees will be covered by the NHS. Regardless of your current circumstance, it is important to seek legal advice to ensure you have taken adequate planning preparations. If you are in need of legal advice, please get in contact with one of our specialists. We will listen to your situation, answer any questions you have and advise you accordingly once we are instructed.
