Elderly Care

Caring for your future

Elderly care lawyers

Choosing the right care or nursing home for you or a loved one is often a major lifetime decision, so it needs careful thought.

Our experienced care solicitors can help you deal with the complexities of care or nursing home fees now, or advise you on how best to plan for them in the future.

If you need more specialist support on NHS continuing healthcare or want to make a lasting power of attorney (LPA), we can guide you through every step of the process.

Helping you with NHS continuing healthcare

Our experienced elderly care lawyers can provide advice on:

  • NHS continuing healthcare funding (also known as ‘fully-funded NHS care’)
  • personal health budgets
  • care funding options and planning
  • Court of Protection matters

For more information on how we can help you make, register or end a lasting power of attorney (LPA), please visit our Powers of Attorney page.

 

  • Expertise

    There’s no substitute for hard-earned experience.

    Our responsive and caring elderly care lawyers can help you:

    • apply for NHS continuing healthcare funding for future care
    • apply for NHS continuing healthcare funding retrospectively or on the fast-track pathway, such as when your condition or that of a loved one’s is deteriorating quickly
    • manage your personal health budget (i.e. the amount of money given to you or a loved one for their health and wellbeing) and care plan
    • understand your care funding options including deferred payment schemes and third party top-ups
    • apply the regulations used by local authorities to determine how much you or a loved one should pay for their residential care
    • apply to the Court of Protection where a loved one is or may be suffering financial or other abuse under a power of attorney
    • understand how to protect your family home from assessment for care or nursing home fees
