November 25, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm UTC+1Free – £5.00
What does the Government’s new Social Care Bill mean for your family?
The average monthly cost of nursing care in a care home costs £3552 per month. This is a cost that many families pay to look after their loved ones with dementia.
Join experts on social care, solicitor, Heledd Wyn and Chartered Financial Adviser, Mark Stone to understand what the new social care bill will really mean for you and your loved ones. This event will take place online, Thursday 25 November, 2 – 3pm.
Will I need to sell the family home? How much can my family claim for at home care?
From October 2023, the government has said that no one will pay more than £86,000 for the care they need for daily tasks such as washing, dressing, and eating.
But there are many reasons it’s not the saving grace it may first appear.
The costs of living in a care home – food, energy bills and the accommodation will not count towards the cap. The average cost of nursing care in a care home costs £3552 per month.
And many will not even qualify for help. Spending on care at home will count towards the £86,000 cap – but – only for those who’ve been assessed by their local council as frail enough to be eligible. And only the frailest qualify, more than half requests are refused.
