Respite Care Funding


Registered User
Dec 12, 2015
It has been decided that Dad needs some time and so Mum should go into respite care.

Social Services are visiting today but in the meantime I have had a very quick look into it with regards to the funding.
It seems that over a certain level of savings the residential care has to be funded 100% by the carer & family.

I haven't yet looked into my parents private health cover but just wondering if anyone knows if private health plans generally cover this or not?
