Paying for Care & Securing Funding – A Masterclass

“Cate had us completely focused the entire time. Not once did I look at my watch for the coffee break! Her masterclass covered the complex issues of securing NHS CHC funding and was the most practical course I have ever attended.” –  R.G. , Private Client Lawyer, West England.

Seminar introduction

This full day masterclass is for private and elderly client law practitioners, including those who act as Professional Deputies or Attorneys, who have a working knowledge of the rules about paying for care and who want to understand how to secure funding assistance from health and social services while legitimately protecting a client’s assets.

Practitioners are increasingly familiar with older clients’ concerns – or those of the family – that there will be nothing left for the family to inherit once long term care needs have been paid for. With two Government manifesto U-turns about adult social care since April 2015, it seems unlikely that the paying for care rules will become any fairer.

The latest long promised Green Paper has not yet materialised and the Association of Social Services Directors warns that adult social care is on the brink of collapse.

This masterclass is practical and tactical. With a workshop approach, practitioners are encouraged to bring their own live casework issues so that everyone can share tips and tactics. The detailed case studies provided with the course notes enhance the practitioner’s knowledge and experience, generate lively debate and leave the practitioner ready to apply the knowledge for their clients’ benefit.
