BACKDATED PAYMENT FOR CARE HOME FEES

Please if there is anyone out there who has paid for a care home for their parents or spouses or anyone. Please check if you can get your fees paid back to you, the payments go back a long time possibly to 2004 so please check to see if you are entitled.

THE DEADLINE IS SOON SO DO NOT LEAVE IT FOR ANOTHER DAY.

THIS IS YOUR MONEY & YOU ARE ENTITLED TO IT.

Check with Saga, Citizens advice or wherever just check.

This is something I heard on our local radio the other day and it came up again today, it has no gain for me but it stuck in the back of my mind and I thought it needs to be advertised more. good luck if you are eligible.

  • If anyone is needing any help here is a link to the Saga website with some info: saga.co.uk/money/news/nhs-c...

  • I can't find a link to reclaiming fees on here, ay help?

  • hAVE DONE THIS AND WORN THE TEASHIRT.

    I had the opputunity to look after an aunt who was dying with dementia, One of the main problems was so called nursing home social care meetings that are sprung upon you every so many months. To discus the standard of care and the level of benefit that the person was too receive The lady in her final year was unablle too feed and needed constant care, social services refused to give the higher rate even though she was basically living dead and was

    unable to wash, dress, talk or any other actions we may have to do, She was even paying for her own care.

    Eventually two weeks before death they gave her the top benefit, she died soon after.

    I feel very uneasy regarding this dying It shows how badly we are treating age, disability,

    and desease, in our final years.Life is a ...... and society seems to be its rider.

  • my Mum was mentally sound buy physically frail she couldn't walk and needed to be hoist lifted for everything, her oa and ra prevented normal day-to-day things. She had to go into a fantastic 22 room home for the physically frail. after 2 and a half years, she died in her sleep.

    We paid around £50,000 for her care to the social services.

  • The link I left was for the Saga site info page, if you copy and paste it into your web browser window or google it then you will find it (I hope).

    To get more help then go to:

    nhs.uk (or use Google) and search for Continuing Healthcare Checklist;

    get Factsheet 20 from ageuk.org.uk (0800 169 6565);

    visit carersuk.org (0808 808 7777);

    visit solicitorsfortheelderly.com (0844 567 6173);

    or see hughjames.com (029 2022 4871).

    I copied the above information from the bottom of one of Paul Lewis's money articles that he has every month in Saga Magazine.

    I think that you have until the end of September to claim, the operative words for the claiming is ‘continuing care checklist tool’.

    Wishing you good luck as you all seem likely to qualify for all your money back.

    On the radio there was someone who was claiming £450.000.00 that he and his brother paid for their parents care over the period..

  • I forgot to ask people to let as many people know about this as it is your right to get your money back.

    If you can spread the word as paying for people to look after your loved one is a heavy burden on anyone.

    LET PEOPLE KNOW AS IT RUNS OUT AT THE END OF THE MONTH.

  • Hurry get your claim in it seems the goverment wants its money, and has given families

    a very short time too claim. Getting old puts the fear of God into me.

    You need to get a friend like Age concern or citizens advice or similair on the go before 30/09/12. that is this Sunday wHAT CAN I SAY .

  • nhscare.info/ This is a site set up by people who have taken on the system and has lots of useful info.
