Going into a care home, or finding a care home for a parent or elderly relative, can be a difficult and stressful time for all involved. But having to pay expensive accommodation fees when you don’t believe you should have to can turn an already distressing situation into a financial nightmare.

The rules on who should pay and who shouldn’t are a cat’s cradle of legalese and evolving Government policy, yet the people who are most affected are likely to be extremely vulnerable, both financially and emotionally.

It’s bad enough coping with the sense of loss, whether that’s the loss of your home or the absence of a relative who’s lived with you for years, but suddenly having to find life-changing amounts of money to pay for accommodation when you’re sure it should have been provided free can be traumatic, to say the least.

We understand that at Nash & Co. That’s why we have a dedicated team of professionals who can pick their way through the minefield of regulation and advise you on whether you have been paying unnecessarily for care home accommodation.

They have helped clients recover thousands of pounds in accommodation fees that should never have been charged in the first place, and they know how to ensure that Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) take responsibility for you or your loved ones when it’s their duty to.

We can visit you in your own home – or care home – if that’s easier for you, because we’re here to help. And we care.

So if you’d like to take the first step towards recovering your peace of mind, give us a call now on 01752 664444 or e-mail us at law@nash.co.uk
