***NEW*** FRIDAY FUNDING CLINIC

Time and time again we are involved with clients whose loved ones are often “bed blocking” in hospital because of concerns or disagreements about how ongoing care needs will be met and who will meet the care costs.

Many people are understandably nervous about making such significant decisions, usually under time pressure and often on behalf of their loved one.  In line with Care Act guidance we always advise people to take advice before signing any legal document.  This ensures that they sign any agreement or contract in accordance with any legal authority and understand the long-term repercussions of doing so.  Time is often of the essence and to facilitate a quick response and easy to access advice we have established a “Friday Funding Clinic” where specialist solicitors within the department will be available to give a free (telephone) advice session to those arranging and paying for long term care.

Ask an expert in our care team about:

  • Local authority needs assessment eligibility
  • Carer’s rights

  • NHS continuing healthcare entitlement
