Care To Be Different was set up by Angela Sherman, after she won a tortuous four-year battle to secure Continuing Healthcare funding for both of her parents. Since then she has created one of the biggest online information resources specifically about NHS Continuing Healthcare – and specifically for families.
Angela has also written a book, How To Get The NHS To Pay For Care, to help families get through Continuing Healthcare assessments and argue their case. It shows you what to do – and what not to do – and it can save you losing everything in care fees. It’s easy to follow and cuts through the confusion to show you step by step how things work.
“Two years ago, when in despair over the care home fees for my mum, we came across your website and we bought your book. Two years later, using the information it contained, we have just been informed that we are to receive a repayment of care home fees to the sum of £24,610.34. It’s the best £29 we have ever spent, so may we thank you for your brilliant help.”
