Care Home Fee Claims

We are highly experienced in NHS continuing healthcare funding and the recovery of care costs, including care home fees. We operate nationwide and our lawyers have an excellent track record in challenging NHS funding decisions. We have successfully recovered substantial sums for our clients. Claims are often funded on a No Win – No Fee basis, so there is usually no financial risk involved.

Continuing healthcare funding claims

If you believe that you or a loved one are paying for care which should be funded by the NHS, then the first step is to contact one of our experts to discuss making a claim.

We can assist people who are in a care home and wrongly paying fees that the NHS should be funding under the continuing healthcare funding scheme.

Alternatively, if you are receiving care in your own home and are worried about the costs, we can establish if you are entitled to receive financial help.

If you have lost a loved one who was paying for care then we can still carry out a retrospective assessment to find out if you are owed a refund by the NHS.

We can also appeal NHS continuing healthcare decisions where your claim for funding has been incorrectly rejected.

Specialist healthcare funding lawyers

We appreciate what an upsetting and daunting time it can be for those moving into a care home and for their families. We handle care claims with compassion and sensitivity and will explain every step of the process to you.

We are specialists in healthcare funding law and are familiar with the arguments the NHS raises when refusing care funding.

Our lawyers will deal with your claim themselves from start to finish and will not pass your claim on to a third party, as is so often the case with many companies who advertise this service.

No Win, No Fee and other funding options

We have a number of flexible options for funding legal costs, including fixed fees and our popular No Win, No Fee scheme. Fear of legal costs should therefore never deter anyone seeking the financial support they are entitled to receive from the NHS.

Areas of Specialism:

While we might not want to think about dying, we owe it to our loved ones to put our affairs in order by making a will and keeping it up to date. This allows us to make financial provision for the people and good causes we really care about. It can also safeguard vulnerable beneficiaries, preserve assets from being exhausted by Care Home fees and, above all, with careful planning it can reduce the impact of Inheritance Tax. It also allows you to protect your children’s inheritance from the consequences of re-marriage.
We provide a full range of estate administration services including: obtaining a Grant of Representation, dealing with the deceased’s tax affairs (Inheritance Tax, Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax) realising the assets, settling debts and distributing the estate. Where appropriate we can also help you make substantial tax savings, for example by varying the Will. If the estate includes a farm or business which needs to be sold or wound up we can work closely with our agricultural and commercial law teams to ensure that the transaction proceeds smoothly.
We can advise on the creation and registration of a Lasting Power of Attorney. An LPA is a legal document which effectively delegates the power to manage your financial affairs to an “attorney” should you lose capacity to manage your own affairs. Having an LPA not only makes financial sense, but offers invaluable peace of mind.
We are experienced in dealing with the Court of Protection; whether it is the registration of a Lasting Power of Attorney or making an application for Deputyship. The combination of our caring approach and specialist expertise in the provision of legal services for the elderly will give you peace of mind.
Inheritance disputes are becoming increasingly common. We can advise on the best steps to take to avoid a dispute arising. Our specialist contentious probate department can also deal with any claim under the Inheritance Act or a challenge to the validity of a will.
