NHS Continuing Healthcare is a package of services for people outside hospital with ongoing health needs. Continuing Care means care provided over an extended period of time to an adult to meet physical or mental health needs arising from disability, accident or illness. This healthcare can be provided in any setting; own home, care home or nursing home. If you are eligible for NHS continuing healthcare in your own home, this means that the NHS will pay for healthcare (e.g. services from a community nurse or specialist therapist. If a client meets the criteria for Continuing Health Care funding in a care home, the NHS pays for your care home fees, including board and accommodation.
