Currently, about a quarter of elderly people require residential care in a care home in later life. That proportion is expected to rise in coming decades, mainly because on average people are living for longer. The rules regarding eligibility for state support are complex, and there are variations in the approach of local authorities which have the statutory responsibility for care.
We provide comprehensive assistance and advice on all the issues involved including the many different options for funding care home fees. One of our advisers, Ian Evans, is accredited with the Society Of Later Life Advisers (SOLLA), an independent organisation that validates expertise in dealing with care home planning and other later life issues such as arranging Lasting Power of Attorney.
