Carewise and Carpenter Box Financial Advisers

Choosing long-term care is a significant financial decision, potentially costing West Sussex residents over £1,500 per week. Effective financial planning is essential to ensure that funds are available for the duration of care needs. However, many people overlook the importance of seeking independent financial advice, which is crucial for making informed and cost-effective choices.

Many individuals believe that the simplest solution is to pay care fees from savings, income, or by selling their home. While these options are straightforward, they may not be the most cost-effective. Proper financial advice can uncover more sustainable and beneficial ways to fund long-term care.

Introducing Carewise

Carewise was established by West Sussex County Council in collaboration with Age UK West Sussex, West Sussex Partners in Care, and the Society of Later Life Advisers (SOLLA). This initiative aims to guide individuals through the complexities of long-term care funding, providing essential information and advice on care and support options.

Carewise offers comprehensive guidance on the most suitable methods of paying for long-term care. Their expert advice ensures you make informed decisions that align with your financial situation and care needs.
