    I need legal advice how do i find it

    a family member can act as Deputy your family cannot evict you, they would not have the legal authority to do so - in fact if no-one has POA or Deputyship, then no-one can legally deal with your dad's affairs if he no longer has capacity; a tricky position to be left in while your dad lives...

    NHS continued funding

    If you have dementia , can you not get NHS continued care funding? My dad had a check list done, he failed but I was not given a report. Social service implied he'd got two A's but one was cancelled out because he had dementia so didn't make it to full assesment.
