As we get older, the possibility of needing long term residential care or of going into a nursing home may be a concern. If this does happen to you, your life savings could be eaten up and your home may even have to be sold to pay the nursing home fees, which my leave little or nothing for your family to inherit.
If you, or a loved one is considering a move into residential care, we can provide you with the practical and confidential advice you will need to make the right decisions for you and your loved one at the right time.
O’Reilly Stewart has a dedicated legal team that specialises in residential care planning. We can advise you on the current legal position relating to residential care and your Local Authority’s policy on nursing home fees together with the details of the upper and lower limits of capital allowed.
In our experience, the earlier you start making plans for the future, the more effective your protective measures will be.
