‘Highly professional service at a fair price. An experienced and user-friendly team‘ Testimonial from: The Legal 500, 2021.
If you find the maze of rules and regulations surrounding funding of residential care home places and/or domiciliary care fees confusing, or you are generally worried about whether you will have to use all of your savings to fund your long term care, we are here to help.
Following the implementation of the Care Act 2014, regulation of state-funding in care homes and at home, and state-funding of care through the NHS is changing things fast. So too are the rules and codes that will apply to local authorities regarding safeguarding.
Do you know what to do or where to turn if you disagree with the decision the local authority or NHS has made regarding your parents’ care and how they should fund it, but feel powerless to help them?
Do you have an elderly relative who has been sectioned under the Mental Health Act 1983 in the past and you need advice regarding local authority funding for aftercare in their accommodation?
Do you suspect that your loved one or resident in your care home is being abused – financially; physically or psychologically?
If so, we can guide you through the rules and regulations to get the best possible result to protect your loved ones.
We act for private clients and also for care homes who may be facing similar concerns, and we continue to successfully challenge local authority or NHS decisions on funding and/or care

At each stage of the process, I have felt listened to, supported and treated with the upmost professionalism and warmth, not only by Jane but by all those I encountered at Jane Bennett Law.
