After successfully getting CHC Funding for my wife, i have been informed that the care company currently used and the NHS are battling it out with the costs… Nhs says the company are too expensive ?
My wife is more than happy with the care agency but i am beginning to think another company could be imposed upon her or a care home could be the next alternative if home care is too expensive ?
David how horrible for you and your wife. Am sorry this has happened after your battle.
CHC has been awarded, and they have no right to put this fly in the ointment.
Home care is far less expensive than a nursing home, which is what your wife would need.
For example, my husband’s nursing home fees were £1400 per week! Probably more now. It wasn’t the most luxurious and not the worst.
Not much shocks me these days, but that quote has! Am out of touch obviously.
As costs have gone up, it should be taken into consideration.
Do not let them say you can top up because that is illegal
I would ask for a detailed description of what exactly they are asking for what amount, so that costs can be adjusted. Alternatively, you can consult with another company that provides care services, if possible.
