Local authorities must contribute to nursing home or residential home costs if a person's capital is below the annually set threshold. Above it the resident must pay the full fees.
Some assets are disregarded from the capital assessment and there are frequent disputes over disregarded items and other aspects of capital, including disputes over capital which might have been given away.
If you are unhappy with a financial assessment, we can assist in the negotiation process. Please contact us at the earliest possible stage (ideally before the financial assessment process is completed) to achieve the best results.
