A Guide to Long-Term Care

Supporting self-care activities and independent living in later life

Welcome to our Guide to Long-Term Care. Rising life expectancy brings with it the challenge of how we fund our future care costs. The question is: who is responsible for looking after us if we need care in old age?

Long-term care

It’s a concern for many people how they will pay the cost of care either for themselves or for a loved one. The reality is that most people will be expected to pay something towards these costs. With the UK’s population ageing, more people will be living with longterm care needs.

As we get older, it becomes more likely that we may need day-to-day help with activities such as washing and dressing, or help with household activities such as cleaning and cooking.

Want to discuss your requirements or concerns, or find out more?

All in all, planning and timing is of upmost importance when it comes to funding for long-term care, and this is more the case now than ever. We can assist you to review the appropriate options available to help fund care and minimise the impact of long-term care fees.

To discuss your options, please contact Mercier Allen today and we will be delighted to help you.
