Continuing Health Care funding for home care or respite is not always easy to get.
CHC is free at the point of delivery as oppose to Social Services "Social Care" which is means tested.
Beacon NHS is an arms length advice and advocacy service set up to assist people with getting CHC funding.
My experience of them is good.
They give one hour free and after that they have a very reasonable charging schedule.
However they also have an extremely well written "Toolkit" which explains everything one might need to know about CHC and a step by step guide.
If this is for you, follow the link, register (over on the right of the page) then download your toolkit.
Best of Luck
