Residential home and nursing care fees

Residential home and nursing care fees

Over the past few years the funding of home, residential and nursing care has become a contentious issue.

For many, it is unclear as to what the guidelines are for such care, despite the government creating national guidelines. One of the main issues is around what constitutes as home and residential and nursing care and whether the funding is the responsibility of the NHS, local authority or whether it falls on you.

As with many things in life, your needs and circumstances can change very quickly. Which is why it is vital that you seek expert legal advice to guide you through this complicated process.


You may be paying unnecessary fees or you may find that you are entitled to state benefits that help. At Tayntons we have expert knowledge in this area and feel that a consultation with our Gloucester solicitors will help you to find out what your next steps are.
