Advice on care fees planning

We're all living longer, and that means lots of us need care in later life. Many elderly people require care in their own homes or residential care. These services can be costly, and we'll help you plan around financing any care requirements you might have well in advance. 

Why should I think about care fees now?

Having a plan can help you avoid difficult financial decisions. We'll explain your options, and ensure you're fully informed every step of the way. Then, we'll help you make a plan for the future that really works for you - and ensures that any costs are kept under control.

The cost of care fees

Long-term care for elderly people takes different forms, but can range from simple help with cooking and cleaning to full-time specialist care. It can happen in a number of settings, such as:

  • The NHS or local authority
  • Your own home
  • Residential care accommodation
  • Nursing care accommodation

In any of these cases, the costs can be high and will quickly eat into any savings or other assets. For example, they could impact the inheritance you leave to your children or loved ones. Tees' team of financial advisers can help you avoid situations like this.
