Why we set up My Care Consultant
Each year, the number of people requiring care in the UK is rising due to increased life expectancy and an ageing demographic. For example, in the UK currently we have 3m people over the age of 85, this number will have increased to 5m people by 2030, and is the fastest growing age cohort in the UK currently.
Social care has never been free, but these demographic changes are resulting in more of us having to arrange and pay for our care ourselves.
We set up My Care Consultant to guide our clients through the confusing and complex UK care system, to provide breathing space and clarity, and help in navigating a clearer, less stressful path towards affordable and suitable care.
130,000 more people require residential care each year in the UK.
55% of them are either partly or fully self-funded.
25% run out of money and have to change the way they receive their care.
The average self-funder lives for approximately 3.5 years in a care home according to insurance provider JUST.
Most people if told they have to fund the care themselves, find themselves spending long periods of time working out their care options and entitlements, adding unnecessary stress to an already difficult and emotional situation.
In addition to this, one in four people run out of money when paying for care and have to settle for a substituted form or even lower level of care.
These stresses can be avoidable
My Care Consultant saves our families time and energy by providing them with independent information and guidance to help them to make informed decisions about their care as early on in the process as possible.
