Arranging and financing care can be a daunting and stressful process. We have a specialist team that deals exclusively with the legal aspects of funding care.
The Care Act introduces new rights for both service users and carers. The Local Authority will have new obligations to make sure that people who live in their area receive services that prevent their care needs becoming more serious. At the moment however, families often feel that support is not made available to them and that Social Services will only help at times of crisis.
Also, for the first time, a spotlight will be shone on carers who will be recognised in law in the same way as those they care for.
We can help you with:
- Right to an assessment for both carers and service users
- What support you are entitled to receive
- The amount you have to pay towards your care
- Who should be paying for care: you, the Local Authority or the NHS?
If you are worried or concerned about care and how the new Care Act may affect you, please call our team today on 01926 491181 for a free consultation or alternatively visit one of our free legal advice clinics that are held in conjunction with Age UK Warwickshire.
