Why is it important to plan for care home fees?

If you ever need to go into a care home you will usually be expected to pay for your own fees.

To determine whether you will be required to pay for your own fees, your local authority will undertake a financial assessment. If what you own exceeds £23,500, they may make no contribution to your care home fees.

The average care home costs can range from £2,000 to £3,000 per month. In many cases, properties have been sold in order to meet care fees. This can significantly impact what you can pass on to your loved ones.
