Eligibility Criteria and Continuing Care Seminar 13th April 2016
NHS continuing healthcare is not any easy win for care funding. Methodical notes and records will assist a home and family members in arguing a case for funding. In order to ensure that NHS continuing healthcare is considered, regardless of whether an individual is receiving domiciliary support in their own home, residential care, nursing care or specialist care, it should form part of an admissions checklist. Along with checking to see if a client has made their will, has in place property and affairs lasting powers of attorney and health and welfare lasting powers of attorney and has had their finances reviewed by an independent financial adviser the checklist assessment for NHS continuing healthcare should be completed when a new client is taken on. Here is the website link to the full decision support tool assessment which provides the detailed definitions of the eleven categories under which an individual is assessed for NHS continuing healthcare. Take time to read the definitions and understand what is being asked to give your clients a fighting chance of a successful application. Pay particular attention to the “ands” and the “ors” and watch out for the commas which can change interpretation. Remember, that if successful the NHS will pay the majority or all of the fees for your home for your resident. If you have any queries in relation to NHS continuing healthcare assessments contact Kelly Duke of Argo Life & Legacy on 07732 165657.

It’s no surprise some find grilling chicken more appealing than frontline care work
Care home staff are among the poorest paid workers, despite their highly skilled role, and the national living wage will do little to bring new people into the sector or increase job satisfaction.
