Do you handle LPAs, Wills and trusts?
Private client solicitors – now you can help prevent your clients being wrongly charged for care.
When your clients are facing decisions about long-term care, it’s often hard for them to know what to do.
- Your clients may not know how the care fees system works.
- The NHS and local authority may give them conflicting and incorrect information.
- Your clients may be denied the nursing care they’ve already paid for all their lives through taxation – and which the NHS has a legal duty to provide free of charge.
Our website is a specialist information resource about care fees and NHS Continuing Healthcare -and you can tap into it to add even greater value to your services to clients.
LPAs, Wills and Trusts
Ask about care fees. If your client – or their elderly relative – is currently in full time care and paying care fees, the NHS may have a duty to pay those fees instead. These care fees often amount to tens (sometimes hundreds) of thousands of pounds. If your client has primarily health needs, the funding they should be receiving is called NHS Continuing Healthcare, and it covers 100% of care fees.
Extra value for clients – and clear benefits for you
It’s always worth having the conversation about care fees with your client. It can save them losing everything they and their family have worked for.
