Care Home Fees & Elderly Client Care

Main Content

If one of your relatives has been admitted into a care home there is a chance that their care should be paid for by the NHS, even if they have been told they are not eligible. This is something we can explore for you and your relative.

Care Home Fees

Specialists in Elderly Client Care, We'll Help You Reclaim Lost Care Home Fees


Since October 2007, if you received care for a primary health need anywhere in England, the NHS must pay for this and cannot apply means-testing to this primary need.

It is important to understand the distinction of a primary need, as this may be the phrase the NHS used when turning down your application for payment of care home fees.

A primary health need is where your physical or mental need is a result of a disability, accident or illness and that need is the main reason for needing care.

If this is the case, there is a possibility you can claim back your relative’s care home fees. We can help you investigate getting your relatives free ongoing care and recover any money they have already paid for their care.

Elderly Clients

Client testimonials

  • We decided to use a local solicitor for our recent house sale and purchase. Despite it becoming a much more complex and pro longed matter. Christopher Taylor provided excellent service throughout his advice was clear and concise and he always found time to talk through options and next steps. He dealt very well with the less than helpful solicitors used by the other parties too. Highly recommend.

  • I was looking for a firm to assist my mother, my sister and myself with the drafting of new wills. I am so pleased we chose this firm. Tom Maxted-Pettman put us all at ease, talked through our options in language we understood and arranged it all with the minimum of inconvenience to us. We got a highly professional service for a reasonable fee. I would recommend this firm to anybody needing legal assistance.
