At Compass Continuing Healthcare we are unique because we specialise in securing care funding from day one.  We know our clients don't want to pay care fees for months, or even years, and then spend many hours (and incur thousands of pounds) seeking to recover these fees in the future so we help secure funding on an ongoing basis meaning there are no fees to pay.  Why pay care fees and then try to recover them?  We can stop the fees now.

With average costs of care for a nursing home in England and Wales sometimes exceeding £800 a week, paying for care homes or paying for care whilst remaining in the family home can be extremely expensive. An individual’s entire life savings can be spent on their care, often with the family home being sold to meet the costs.

However if an individual’s primary need for care is a health need the full cost of their care should be paid by the NHS via funding called continuing healthcare funding (also known as CHC funding).

Make sure you watch the video by Martin Lewis from Money Saving Expert explaining how to cover care home fees.

Continuing Healthcare is provided and managed by Compass CHC.

"My father-in-law, who had been given a terminal diagnosis, had reached the point where he was immobile. The local GP, advised admission to hospital and suggested that a Nursing Home ought to be considered, and that he would have to be self-funding."
