Self funding nursing care

As we head into later life, some of us might require nursing care. This type of care includes accommodation, meals, laundry and planned activities in addition to specialist care from a qualified registered nurse.

You will most likely be required to self fund your nursing care if your assets, including property, are valued over £23,250.

How do I self fund nursing care?

Nursing care fees are expensive and self funding them can quickly put a strain on your hard-earned capital. That’s why it is important to seek advice about putting a plan in place which aims to sustainably self fund nursing care for the rest of your life whilst protecting your lifetime’s earnings.
