NHS continuing healthcare is non-means tested NHS funding that pays for a package of care to meet your assessed needs, either in your own home or a care home. With care fees often over £1000 per week it is not surprising that many people want to be assessed for eligibility which could ensure access to the care they need whilst preserving their hard earned savings.
We are pleased to announce that our Health and Community Care Team will be holding three FREE seminars in various locations, offering Care Providers the chance to ensure they are up to date on the current laws.
