Care Fees Funding

United

At present one in five people over the age of 70 receives some form of care, mainly in their own homes.  Of these around another one in five requires continuous care, which is mainly in a residential home or nursing home.

  

If you dread the thought of spending your final  years in a nursing home, therefore, the good news is that this currently only applies to 4% (ie one in 25) of the population over the age of 70.

You may be reading this because you are concerned about an elderly relative who is getting increasingly frail, and wondering what his or her options are.  On the other hand, as there is a possibility that you or your spouse may require some form of care in the future, then your interest is to include the possibility of requiring care into your long term financial planning.
