When you are faced with finding appropriate care arrangements for a loved one, it can be a very daunting and confusing time.  With ongoing budget cuts to statutory services, resources will inevitably be affected and you may find you need more support than is on offer from your Local Authority.

Aleisha White of the Care Advice Centre says, when considering care options, it is vital that people are able to access sensitive, high quality information and advice and are fully aware of all of the options available to them. For those funding their own care, this is even more important, as this is the group that is often left to fend for itself. Access to specialist care fee planning advice is particularly important for this group of people. Paying the costs of long term care could deplete your assets and significantly reduce any inheritance.

If you or a loved one needs to be in a care home due to a primary health need, then it is possible that the Primary Care Trust should be funding your placement. Getting properly assessed can be time consuming and complex and having a professional advocate involved to hold your hand through the process can be very helpful.
