A Guide to services, charges and welfare benefits for adults in need of care in the community or in care homes.
There is comprehensive coverage of: services, welfare benefits and other financial help for adults, and their carers, needing care at home or in supported housing; how charges are means-tested, administered and enforced; the duties of social services and health authorities; challenging decisions, enforcing rights and common problems.
Fully indexed and cross-referenced to law, guidance, court and commissioners’ decisions, there is in addition the full text of key legislation setting out the powers and duties of social services authorities.
