Care Fee Advice


The spiralling cost of residential care fees are a concern for the majority of people.


The state provides little support, and most are expected to meet the costs of their care in full, which can be as high as £1,200 per week and above in some situations. Our specialist lawyers are able to assess and plan for this eventuality, providing no-nonsense advice specific to your circumstances. There are many opportunities at different stages in life to reduce potential liability to residential care fees in the future, and such an assessment forms part of our unique free Wills and Estate Planning Report service.


Challenges to Care Fee Assessment


Do you feel that your condition has been inappropriately assessed by the local authority and that you are paying too much in residential care fees?


At Watson Ramsbottom we are able to offer advice in challenging the decisions made in respect of the contributions that need to be made by our clients. Our care fees team has a history of successfully obtaining repayments of money paid by our clients incorrectly, both during the resident’s lifetime and after their death and such challenges are on the increase.
