Trust drawdown tax

I am 70, my wife is 68. Our assets are 2 properties worth £800 and £100k, ISAs worth £70k and a SIPP of £44k. Both properties are Tenants in Common. We wish to protect our assets from Care Home fees and leave our assets equally to our 3 children. One provider has recomemnded wills using Discretionary Trust of Residue, another using Asset Protection Trust or Revocable Life Interest Trust. If you were me which trust would you opt for and why ? Or something else ?

What is tax liability when beneficiaries draw money from these trusts ?
