Eligibility for continuing health care assessment and disputed assessments in Manchester and Cheshire

With the ever increasing cost of healthcare, families ought to ensure that they are getting the best deal possible. People are living longer and a larger proportion are now ending their days in residential and care homes, with typical fees ranging from £500 to £1,500 per week and possibly more.

Annual fees of £25,000 to £75,000 are an enormous drain on anybody's assets and can quickly dissipate them completely.

Financial planning is advisable to minimise the impact of residential and care home fees. However, sometimes fees are paid unnecessarily due to improper or inadequate tests being carried out by local authorities resulting in the 'patient' being placed in a home at the expense of the patient, rather than the NHS or Local Authority.

At McHale & Co Solicitors we can help to determine whether the correct criteria were used and applied in establishing eligibility for NHS or Local Authority funded care. We use our expertise and that of specialist Health Workers and Consultants to establish whether the correct assessment has taken place.

If the wrong criteria has been used or incorrectly applied then substantial refunds and future savings can be obtained.

For more information and a confidential discussion on the subject you should telephone Paul Fitton on 0161 928 3848.
