My Dad has Alzheimers and it has worsened over the last few weeks. He has almost paid off his mortgage, there very little left to pay on it. My sister and her daughter live with him. As I understand it, the government will take everything they can get their grubby little hands on. Leaving my sister to find somewhere else to live. She doesn't earn a lot and there is no way she will be able to gather together a deposit to buy. Has anyone got any advice for us, so we can somehow keep part if not all of our inheritence. I appreciate it seems mercinary, but my has piad all his taxes and national insurance all of his life. He has never claimed any benefits and now the government want to take everything he has worrked all of his life to keep and pass on. Please could someone offer help or advice?
