There are companies offering advice about protecting assets from payment of future care costs by way of “Roadshows”, which are touring the country.
In many cases this type of planning will be completely ineffective, unnecessary and prohibitively expensive. We have been alerted to the fact that some local authorities are looking out for these arrangements, and will disregard them.
If you are concerned about future care costs, speak to us. We have lawyers who are members of Solicitors for the Elderly. That means we are experienced in dealing with issues that affect older people, including advising about care cost issues. There are steps that can be taken to mitigate the impact of care fees, but they must be very carefully considered, rather than purchased “off the shelf”.
