Hi, Wondering if anyone else is in a similar situation to us.... I am not sure whether my Dad's will can be legal, as it stated that if my Mum went into care (she was already starting to suffer from dementia when he became terminally ill), then the house would be sold and half of the money would pay for her care and half be put into trust for us, their kids. She has now been in care for a couple of years and "her half" of the money is now becoming low (around £20,000) so now we could ask the state to pay towards her care. But if the money in trust is actually hers, then we are not at the point where the state starts contributing.
I realise we may need to ask a financial advisor/ solicitor but I thought if anyone knows this situation well, you might have some advice for us. I am really worried about the point when the state pays towards it and Mum has no money remaining and we have to start paying towards it. I have a baby and once I start working again, half of my wages will go on nursery fees. Others in my family also would find it difficult to pay. It is a very worrying thought.
Thanks for any advice on this
