What is Prepare for Care?

Care fees are an important part of planning for the future and Rotheras can help with our Prepare for Care reports.

Prepare for Care is a tailored report provided exclusively by Rotheras’ private client team which plans and puts arrangements in place for clients entering or considering care.

The UK has an aging population, with over 12 million people living in the UK aged 65 or above and those aged 85+ set to double to 3.2 million by 2041. Consequently the number of those with degenerative diseases such as dementia and requiring extra care is ever-increasing.

If you are going into care or think you may need to consider care in the future, then understandably you may be worried about how you will fund care home fees and what will happen to your home if you go into care, or how these decisions will be made if you lose mental capacity in the future.

At Rotheras our private client team can offer a specialist tailored package called Prepare for Care, to help you put arrangements in place now about how to pay for residential care and what you can do to protect your home from care home fees.

Our solicitors will discuss your circumstances in detail with you in order to put together a report tailored to your needs and the steps you can take now to prepare. We can also refer you to our network of independent financial advisors to give you specialist financial advice. 

Our Prepare for Care report will provide useful and detailed information on:

  • The help and financial support available to fund care home fees
  • How to prepare for moving into residential care
  • How to find a care home
  • Ways of maximising your income
  • How to protect your home against care home fees
  • Wills
  • Lasting Powers of Attorney

We can put together a Prepare for Care report for you for a fixed fee of £500+VAT

This was my first experience using a solicitor, something I felt quite daunted about. Rothera Sharp (Greg and Petra) put me at ease and were very helpful.

Last year I experienced a car accident, as a front seat passenger. I put forward a personal injury claim with Rothera Sharp. From start to finish, my claim has been dealt with efficiently and professionally, and I have always felt my best interests were considered. All communications were made via letter or email to inform me of all further updates. My claim has now come to an end and I am very happy with the overall outcome. I would recommend Rothera Sharp for their service.

We cannot recommend Chris Powell of Rothera Sharp more highly. Mr Powell demonstrated the upmost professionalism with a high level of knowledge of the area for which he was representing us. Anyone needing representation/advice regarding the area of haulage will find that Chris Powell and Rothera Sharp are the best choice.

Claim dealt with efficiently and to a satisfactory conclusion. Wayne Vickers visited me at home initially and explained everything thoroughly. Professional service throughout. Recommended

Training Contract – Tips for writing a great job application.

You have seen the job of your dreams and pictured yourself working at the company, reusable coffee cup in one hand and in the other – your branded logo pen sat in the open plan office…

Easements: when could an interference arise with my ability to exercise a right of way?

The recent case of Vance & Vance v Collerton & Collerton has illustrated that if it is not unreasonable to insist on the continued luxury of a widely granted right of way, an actionable interference will occur even if the person benefiting from the right is left with reasonable access.
