Why seek independent financial advice?

We strongly recommend seeking specialist independent financial advice before deciding on how to pay care fees.

As a West Sussex resident, you could be looking at care home costs of up to £1500 per week (more in some cases), depending on your individual needs and the care home.

Seeking specialist independent advice on how to fund the care home costs will give you peace of mind that you:

  • know all the options available
  • have explored the pros and cons of each option
  • select the best option for your situation
  • ensure you don’t run out of funds.

This advice is also echoed by the consumer group Which? who recommend that people seek specialist financial advice on how to pay for their care from advisers who are members of Society of Later Life Advisers.
