We all grow old and for some it can be a more draining and difficult experience than for others. While some maintain a healthy mind and body until the very end of their lives, others require help and assistance and sometimes 24-hour care.
In this latter case it means there is the task of finding a suitable care home that is right for that person and also for the family. Adult children may find themselves faced with selling property and using that money to fund the care that is needed. However, whether this is the case or not, there could be an opportunity to make a claim for NHS care as well.
Unfortunately there are cases where there has been a delayed NHS care claim. In these situations people have been left to wait for months to find out if a claim is warranted or not. As you can imagine this is a tough situation to be in, especially when the individual may already be coping with the change of moving into a care home (or having a parent make that move). Any delay can be frustrating to go through, especially if it goes on for a long time.
How stressful can it be to wait a long time to find out about a claim?
Many people find it stressful to be in this situation. They may be dealing with elderly and poorly parents who are paying to stay in a nursing home, for example. Alongside the worry about their parents there is the worry that money could run out.
It has been reported that some people in this situation have been left waiting for news for more than two years. As you can imagine this is very worrying and can make a tough situation worse.
