Hospice Care

The Costs of care for the elderly

The Costs
The NHS can provide those in need with free elderly care, while hospices are charity organisations that provide another vital service. The financial and legal aspects of private servcies go hand in hand with the quality of personal care and are a very important consideration for those able afford this route because they have enough savings or own their own home. Quality elderly care is usually payable for life. It is also essential to plan ahead for rising home care costs due to increased needs, possibly culminating in full time elderly nursing care at home or residential nursing home care.

Care for the Elderly ...


There is a common misbelief that a hospice is where everyone goes to die. That is not true. The average stay in a hospice is twelve to fourteen days, after which many patients return home.


NAHF What Is A Hospice

The hospice is not just a place where people come to die. Many go back home again; many carers are glad of the respite to re-charge their batteries and re-kindle their commitment to those they love. see Funding Care for the Elderly
