COVID-19 Update: As a company we are still fully operational despite the ongoing issues with the Coronavirus.  We are fortunate that as a company we have previously invested heavily in technology and as a result have not been impacted by the need for remote working.  Whilst we understand that clients may be inundated with overreaching concerns in relation to their own employment and or businesses, we would highlight that the issue of paying for care is still ongoing through the crisis, and that each week an individual is paying for care, spending thousands of pounds potentially unnecessarily.  With this in mind, we stand ready to immediately commence the investigation and set about securing the relevant records.  In summary, the sooner we are instructed to proceed the sooner we are able to put a stop to care costs being paid where the individual ought to be entitled to Continuing Healthcare funding.

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). 

NHS continuing healthcare is free healthcare provided by the NHS to individuals who have significant healthcare needs. The NHS continuing healthcare package of care can be received in any setting outside of hospital including care homes, hospices or even within your own home. A person’s health needs, not their location, is the key factor to receiving continuing healthcare funding.

Importantly, it doesn’t matter what your income is or what savings you have, if you meet the criteria, you are entitled to free NHS CHC funding. NHS continuing healthcare funding is not means tested and it can cover up to 100% of care costs

Continuing Healthcare is provided and managed by Compass CHC.
