Caring for your future with Symponia
We are extremely conscious that sorting out the practicalities surrounding care fees can be difficult, emotive and stressful, and as a result we each aim to make the process as easy and straightforward as possible.
Previously referred to as 'long term care', but now far more widely known as 'care fees planning', it can actually cover a whole range of advice, including personal finances, bank accounts, equity release and/or specific financial products.
If you are looking into this area for yourself or on behalf of a relative or friend, you may also be coming to terms with new and unfamiliar words and phrases such as, attendance allowance, nursing care allowance, NHS continuing healthcare, enduring powers of attorney, continuing or lasting powers of attorney, receivership orders, deputyships, property disregard, deferred payment arrangements, care homes with nursing, residential homes, immediate needs care plans and/or immediate annuities.
Our advice is don’t panic; with the help of your Symponia member you can put in place a simple, yet comprehensive, methodical and stepped plan that will enable you to step back, breathe a little and concentrate on the welfare of the person needing care, with the added reassurance that the financial side of things is being taken care of by a dedicated, appropriately trained and suitably qualified professional.
Each and every family approaches the funding of care fees differently, and it goes without saying that, they all deserve personal and bespoke attention. All of our members will always endeavour to supply details of all the options available for every circumstance, making sure that both personal and family objectives are being met.
