Rachel Cope – WhoPays4Care
Having spent the week looking after an old man with dementia, one thing that became very obvious was that they needed more day to day support, however that comes at a price – or does it? Please meet Rachel Cope from Who Pays 4 Care. As we get older many of us will find ourselves with loved ones who need care – but who pays?!
The Department of Health National Framework for NHS Continuing Care and NHS funded Care 2012 states “if a patient’s principle need for care is a health need, that care should be funded by the NHS”, irrespective of how wealthy or not that person may be” It has been estimated that at least one in four people who pay for their own care should not be doing so, and this is where Rachel comes in.
Rachel and her husband have a great success rate on challenging care fees, if there is a case for not paying for care by selling the family silver, Rachel will challenge that case! Rachel also has a book “What U Need To Know About Long Term Care” at £15 it is a wise investment for anyone with family and friends who might need care, it is a complete guide to how to challenge the system yourself. The book is written in plain English and explains how to challenge the system and ensure that the correct level of care is provided for those needing long term care, without selling all the family heirlooms. I also know the book has helped many families and proven itself to be an invaluable asset to financial and legal advisers with clients needing care.
I have referred Rachel to a number of people, all of whom speak so highly of her support and knowledge, as she once said, it is unlikely she is on the Christmas Card list of the NHS or Social Services, but for the people she supports and protects daily, she is their lifeline.
