NHS continuing healthcare - adults

Care and support planning

f you are eligible for fully funded NHS Continuing Healthcare, the next stage is to arrange a care and support package which meets your assessed needs either in a nursing home or your own home. We will discuss and agree this with you and your family or representative. 

  • If you get NHS Continuing Healthcare at home, adult social care services may still be responsible for providing some support services for you or your carers. You can have 'mixed' packages of care, where some services come from the NHS and some from adult social care services. If adult social services provide care for you, they will usually do a financial assessment to decide whether you need to make a financial contribution. 
  • If you are eligible for NHS Funded Nursing Care, the continuing healthcare team will work with you and your family to find a nursing home that can meet your needs.
