|18/11/2010 - Should you be paying care home fees?|
If a person is in a care home due to either mental health or physical difficulties then they may be eligible to have those fees paid by the NHS through the NHS continuing healthcare package.
Eligibility rests on whether their need for care is primarily due to their health needs. Put another way; whether they have a ‘primary health need’.
In order to decide whether the person concerned has a ‘primary health need’ they would need to have a full assessment undertaken. Details of this can be obtained from their local doctor, nurse, social worker or other health professional. They, or one of their colleagues, will carry out an initial assessment/checklist to see if the case is one that requires a full assessment to be carried out.
