can someone clarify what continuing health care involves. My husband has been in a care home for the last year. It is a dual care/ nursing home. Until 3 weeks ago he was in the residential dementia unit. Then he was admitted to hospital after suffering seizures and pneumonia. While he was in hospital his medical team decided he should be discharged to the nursing part of the home as continuing health care. We pay part fees ourselves with help from adult social care paying the rest. I’m not sure how the continuing health care works. Do the nhs take over full funding or do we continue paying our part as usual with the nhs paying the nursing element? He was only discharged yesterday and is now in the nursing unit. But when I asked I just get vague answers.
