The news yesterday that Councils don’t pay a fair price for care may come as no surprise in these straightened times but it is a worrying trend for older people, their carers and loved ones.

Whilst Councils are short of funds to cover the care needs for our ageing population, this is a vital service offered to older people in their homes. Without it many vulnerable older people are being left without proper support.

I have just last week liaised with the Local Authority about funding care in a client’s own home. We regularly advise on the issue of funding and the cost of care both in the home and in care homes.

Please contact me to discuss any issues further.
