Care navigators


Paying for care is thought to be the second biggest financial commitment that we make during our lifetime, after taking out a mortgage.

Navigating the care market is, however, a minefield, so this adds to the financial pressure people feel.

Jacqueline Berry set up My Care Consultant to help people find the services they need, understand the funding available and secure any funding and, importantly, the long term security of your loved ones.

In our conversation, Jacqueline explains the difference between social care, NHS continuing healthcare and nursing care, which authorities are responsible for which type of funding, the application process, the 9 different ways to pay for care and how to find the most suitable care provider.

She explains how they work with individuals and qualified later life financial advisers to get the best possible outcome for you and your loved ones, as you navigate the care market.
