Health and Social Care Law

Here at Tayntons, we have an experienced team of lawyers ready to help clients when their relatives or loved ones need to understand the relevant processes when a person needs to look at care services.

There are many different domains of care and there is a range of different care services and products to best help meet your needs.

Going into care

The local authority has a legal duty to meet any eligible care needs under the Care Act 2014. However, you may have some concerns or are unhappy with the local authority’s involvement in these areas. We can help assist with locating suitable care providers or residential care options as well as help to arrange care needs assessments and develop independent care plans, whether you wish to receive care at home or in a residential care setting.

If there is a dispute and you are unhappy with the outcome of a local authority care needs assessment or best interests decision then we may be able to help you challenge this.

Care Funding

We understand the complexities of care funding and can advise you on aspects such as:

  • Eligibility for care funding including local authority contributions and NHS Continuing Health Care;
  • Third party top-up arrangements;
  • Financial needs assessments;
  • Deprivation of capital rules; and
  • Deferred payment schemes.
