1211221Continuing care docHere’s a useful info letter from Mills and Reeve, a law firm. It describes the changes in the recent Department of Health guidance on Continuing Healthcare. This is the funding for people who need homecare – it’s more generous and flexible than social services community care funding, if you are eligible. The ‘National Framework explains the whole thing and tells the professionals (usually nurses) how to do the assessments. Crucial to people who want to fight a decision. Because the order of the new framework has changed, the Mills and Reeve info has a table showing where you can find old topics in new places.
