Care Options in Retirement


    An increasing number of people are responsible for arranging care and accommodation for an elderly relative but few are sufficiently equipped to navigate their way through the many options and complex financial and legal considerations. What should you do if a relative wants to stay at home? What benefits are available for the elderly? How does means testing work and what should a care home contract cover? "Care Options in Retirement" provides vital information on the many types of housing and care available, from care at home and retirement villages to care homes and respite care. There is detailed guidance on support services for those staying at home, how to sell a relative's home, renting and buying retirement housing, arranging a trial stay at a care home and much more. This complete guide also covers regional differences in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland plus how to cater for religious or mental health needs. "Care Options in Retirement" is the essential companion read for anyone struggling to take care of their loved one's needs.
