Financial Matters

Once you have found a suitable care home, you and/or your family will no doubt be concerned about the best way to fund your care fees.

Most families wish to ensure that their relative can stay in the chosen care home for the rest of their lives as well as safeguarding as much of the existing capital as possible.

The Benefits of Financial Planning

  • All current and future options can be considered
  • Control your future without need to rely on the Local Authority
  • Be confident that care requirements will be funded, no matter how long care is needed
  • Stay in the chosen care home as long as this is the best care solution
  • Benefits can often be paid tax-free and paid for life
  • The family home (or its value) can be safeguarded
  • Inheritances can be protected
