Information for providers
Carewise is a care funding scheme providing people with information and advice on paying for care home fees in West Sussex.
Working in partnership with the Society of Later Life Advisers (SOLLA), Age UK West Sussex and West Sussex Partners in Care, West Sussex County Council introduced Carewise to ensure residents have access to support and guidance on how to pay for their care. The scheme has an approved panel of care fees specialists who are all members of SOLLA and are able to offer expert advice on a range of areas that affect people in later life such as care fees planning, power of attorney, wills and inheritance tax.
By getting advice before they make a decision, people will be confident they have explored all their options and can afford to pay for their care for as long as it’s needed. Speaking to Carewise can not only provide peace of mind for your residents, but also for you as a care home owner, knowing that your residents can remain at your home without the worry of running out of money.
Organise a Carewise care planning surgery
Some of the care homes in West Sussex already run regular care planning surgeries for their residents and relatives to hear from a care fees specialist about Carewise, as well as issues around powers of attorney and public guardianship.
If you would like to organise a care planning surgery in your home, please email email@example.com.
To request copies of the Carewise information pack for your new residents, please email your request, together with your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
