We suggest that you seek help form an Independent Financial Adviser. The Financial Services Authority requires that all advisers who provide advice on care funding should have passed the CF8 qualification (certificate in Financial Planning and Long -Term Care Insurances) to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the complexities of care funding.
You or your representative will meet the costs of your care as per prior arrangement.
Weekly or Fortnightly or Monthly payments can be negotiated with us.
Costs of care depend on the grade of carer required to meet a specific need, and the hours worked. It also reflects whether care is required days, nights, weekends or holidays.
Following an initial enquiry, we carry out a free home care assessment and produce a no-commitment care plan.
This specifically outlines the hours and level of care recommended to maintain a consistent high level service.
It is at this point we are able to produce accurate costs for you.
