In the climate of ever increasing concern about how to meet the costs of long term care I continue to be surprised at how few people are aware of NHS Continuing Healthcare Funding.

Whilst its availability is subject to detailed assessment of care needs across a range of areas, I feel families need to be better informed of the assessment process and their ability to request assessment, and indeed reassessment, as needs change over time.

The NHS website is a good place to start to gather some information.  We can advise on challenging assessments, when appropriate.
