Mum and Dad and all those unlawfully denied CHC

01/05/2021

Both parents with advanced dementia have been in care homes for a number of years, self-funding. The situation is distressing enough, but applying for NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) has added to the trauma. CHC is the most disgraceful and dysfunctional system, unlawfully denying the healthcare funding they are eligible for. When you need 24x7 care because of your illness, unable to do anything for yourself, to suggest that those needs are social care is ludicrous.
