Elderly Client & Care Funding

Our specialist Elderly Client team within the Wills and Probate Department gives advice and support to many elderly and vulnerable adults and their families.

We offer prompt advice on:

  • Free NHS Continuing Healthcare Funding and Funded Nurse Care Contribution.
  • Local Authority Funding, to include issues relating to Third Party Contributions (“top up fees”).
  • Many other funding of long term care issues, including s117 Mental Health Act 1983 free aftercare.
  • Advice on Lasting Powers of Attorney, Enduring Powers of Attorney, Court of Protection issues
  • Advance Medical Decisions and Wills are also available through our Wills, Trusts and Probate Department.

 

The team provides support and valuable talks to local volunteer groups and charities. The Elderly Client team also provides Care Clinics from time to time so please check our news page for details.

Nicola is a member of SFE (Solicitors for the Elderly), an independent national organisation of lawyers who specialise in providing advice on legal issues specific to elderly and vulnerable adults.

Wace Morgan has built up considerable expertise in the area of obtaining NHS continuing healthcare funding for a patient’s existing and future nursing care including retrospective funding claims where patients were wrongfully requested to pay nursing fees: over £2 million has been recovered for our clients so far. Thousands of pounds have been recovered for clients who have improperly been asked to fund the “Third Party Top Up” for their loved one’s care.

For any care funding concerns please do not hesitate to contact our Elderly Client team who would be delighted to assist you through the legal minefield.
