Long term care planning advice
When a loved one loses their independence, it can have a significant impact on the whole family. We understand that at this time you want to find the best care for your relative.
The need for long-term care, and how it should be paid for, is arguably one of the greatest causes for concern among our growing aging population. Many elderly people were brought up to believe that the State would look after them ‘from cradle to grave’. Sadly, this is not usually the case.
Although the NHS provides free medical care in hospitals, the provision of long term care outside hospitals is now the responsibility of individual local authorities and is not free to everyone.
Clear and honest independent advice
Long-term care fees planning is a complicated and sensitive area. We have a wealth of knowledge and experience in this area, and we have advisers accredited by the Society of Later Life Advisers (SOLLA).
Our care-fees experts have first-hand experience of this complex and sensitive matter. They can provide the reassuring long-term care funding advice you need to help you find a way to pay for the care required.
We will help you to understand how the various options will affect you, and we’ll keep explaining them until you are comfortable. We will discuss a range of options compassionately including:
- Long-term care funding ‘at home’: different care packages are available offering different levels of care. Once you’ve chosen what you need, you may require some expert thinking to help you understand how to best fund
- Residential and rursing care home funding: a common dilemma is how to meet shortfalls in funding residential or nursing care home fees without sacrificing family assets. We are expertly placed to help.

What our clients say…
“What would we have done without you! It has been a difficult four years financially for the family and the situation has been handled with great understanding and patience. You sorted out a long term care package quickly and efficiently for my elderly mother who suddenly needed to go into a care home and then recommended a very suitable financial investment portfolio for her. Thanks so much to you all.”Gary B., Surrey
