It is estimated that up to 100,000 elderly people in the UK could have been wrongly made to fund their ongoing care in nursing homes – sometimes feeling forced to sell their home to do so.
If your relative or spouse went into nursing care between 2004 and 2011, during which time their condition deteriorated, you may be eligible to make a claim for the costs.
Please note that the government have set a deadline of 30th September 2012 for relatives to lodge claims for wrongly paid nursing home fees. If you think you may have a claim of this nature, we would urge you to contact us straight away on 0125 460 6090.
Reclaiming Care Home Fees
Under the NHS Continuing Healthcare scheme, patients taken into full-time nursing care should be monitored and assessed on a regular basis. However, it has come to light that this process has frequently not occurred. This has left many people, who may have been re-assessed to qualify for NHS funding for their care should the correct process have been followed, with the same status – leaving them to self-fund their care where it should have been paid for by the NHS.
