NHS Continuing Healthcare and NHS-funded Nursing CareMarch 28 2019
NHS Continuing Healthcare
If you have complex health and care needs, the NHS may cover the cost of all your care at home or in a care home, including the services you receive from the local council. This is called continuing healthcare and is funded by your local clinical commissioning group (CCG).
A diagnosis of dementia doesn’t necessarily mean you will qualify for NHS continuing healthcare. This depends on how complex and severe your needs are.
NHS-funded Nursing Care
This is similar to NHS continuing healthcare but applies to people who are in a nursing home. If you are eligible, the NHS will pay for your nursing care.
For more details see the Department of Health booklet, NHS Continuing Healthcare and NHS-funded Nursing Care, for people who may need the care, and their families and carers. Link below.
