Care home fees of over £4,000 have been refunded after Pearson’s took up the case of a local man
Mr Malcolm Parkin’s mother Florence was in a Saddleworth care home, Stoneswood Care, Delph, and the Jonathan Grange Nursing Home, Mossley. The claim was for retrospective funding going back to 2006 and was pursued for the estate of Mrs Parkin, after she had passed away.
Speaking about cases such as this, Solicitor, Mike Talbot said: “If you or a relative are in a nursing home because of mental or physical illness then you might be paying for something which could be funded by the NHS.
“We have acted on behalf of a number of people and claims can be from just a few thousand pounds to over £100,000.”
After NHS Oldham considered this latest case they agreed Mrs Parkin should have received NHS Continuing Healthcare Funding for her care and accommodation for the last 2 months of her life, inclusive of 9 years interest.
Her son, Malcolm, said: “I use Pearson’s because their professional and pragmatic approach comes with a friendly and not over-formal attitude which helps me understand quite complicated situations.”Subscribe to our newsletter
