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 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.

 

If you feel that your own or your loved one’s condition has been or was inappropriately assessed by the local authority and that you are paying or have paid too much in residential care fees then please get in touch to arrange an appointment for a free initial consultation.

 

Our Specialist Team can help you with any issues relating to Care Fees, Powers of Attorney, Wills and Probate. Please contact our specialist care fee advice team on 01254 884422 or complete our contact form to discuss matters further.
