Long Term Care

Whether you are planning for the future or have an immediate need for long term care, it is always best to speak to a specialist financial Adviser such as CRS in Northwich.

Many of us go through life thinking old age or ill health are a long way in the future, but the future always comes a lot quicker than we expect and ill health along with the need for long term care can occur at any age.

It is imperative you plan for long term care as early as possible to give peace of mind for you and your family and to ensure that you are prepared.

Will I have to pay towards long term care?

If after assessment, your local authority decides you have eligible care needs they will undertake a financial assessment to work out if and how much you will have to pay towards the cost of your care.

The amount you are responsible for paying depends on a number of factors such as your income, how much money you have saved, the value of your assets and if you need to go into residential care, may also include the value of your home.
