Calculating Care Fees

Uncategorized

It’s that time of year where the Local Authority calculate how much someone in residential care should be paying towards their care fees. I’m not talking about the initial ‘means assessment’, but the review. It’s a tough calculation to work through – tariffs, disregards, personal allowances?!? We act for numerous vulnerable clients, and families of vulnerable clients, so we know the rules and what to look at. But I imagine it’s hard for the lay person.  There is no explanation given by the Local Authority, just a list of numbers. Don’t take it as a given that the Local Authority will get it right, everyone makes mistakes and it is to the resident’s benefit, sometimes not. It’s worth taking the time to check it over. And if you need help translating the calculations, feel free to get in touch.
