Hello, I'm trying to sneak in 2 questions for the price of one here!
Mum's been in a care home for 4 months, she is self funding. Following a brain scan we now have an official AZ diagnosis.
Q1 Does this mean I can apply for attendance allowance for her?
Q2 She still owns the house she used to live in and in the current economic climate it may take time to sell. Does she still have to pay council tax given that she is not using council services in that area any more?
Any advice gratefully recieved, I'm helping her manage her savings to pay for the care home and I don't want her to pay bills she doesn't need to
