About the event: 

When the person you care for goes into residential care this can be a difficult time for all. In this workshop, we will explain the basics of care home fees and pensions, and you will learn about free personal and nursing care payments. 

In this workshop, we will look at:

  • Understanding how care home fees are assessed and calculated
  • Other useful considerations for carers
  • Frequently asked questions
  • How and where to seek further help
