Care Home Fee Solicitors & Care Home Fees Recovery Claims

 

Care home funding can be complicated and an unwelcome source of stress at what is already a difficult time for families.

If you or a relative has moved into a care home and you feel the fees should be funded by the NHS, the team of specialist lawyers here at Lanyon Bowdler can help you claim them back.

You can help speed up the process by completing a brief questionnaire which you can download by clicking here.

We have a wide range of pricing options available, including service level guarantees and fixed fees.

Who Can Reclaim Care Home Fees?

Fees can only be reclaimed for care provided after 1 April 2012 unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Everyone currently in care who is either paying the full amount or a contribution to their care may be eligible to make a claim, as are the estates of people who were paying towards their care but have passed away since April 2012.

Who is Eligible for NHS Care Home Funding?

In a nutshell, the NHS should fund full nursing care for patients with a primary need, regardless of their financial situation. Anyone who needs long-term nursing care, whether in a residential home or not, should have an assessment by the NHS to determine whether they are eligible for continuous healthcare funding.

If you, or a relative, did not have an assessment - or if you disagreed with your assessment outcome - then you do have a right to challenge it.

If nursing needs are incidental to the need for accommodation, then funding is not normally provided by the NHS. It’s a difficult distinction to make, so please contact the team to discuss your individual circumstances.

Reclaim Care Home Funding

If you think you or a relative’s care should be funded by the NHS because of a primary healthcare need, please get in touch so we can help.
