CA’s experience of Carewise

CA first contacted Carewise when she and her family were arranging for her mum to go into a residential care home. She had a property to sell and some savings but was still going to have a shortfall.

CA and her family spoke to a Carewise care fees specialist, who recommended purchasing an ‘immediate needs annuity’ (a guaranteed income to pay the care fees) which provided peace of mind that they would not run out of funds.

“I just want to say a big thank you for all the help. I couldn’t have managed to sort everything out without your help. You always took the time to explain everything.” CA, Crawley

People can also receive help from Age UK West Sussex, Brighton and Hove’s free money advice service.
