My mother doesn't have dementia my dad does but mum has recently gone into a home for respite. It is my son's 18th birthday later this year and as she gave my older daughter some money for her 18th she wishes to do the same for him.We are hoping we can prove to SS if the time comes why it was done. She is self funding at the moment and probably will be for at least six months to a year. Do you think this will seen as deprivation of assets. It wouldn't be a massive amount but would help my son towards his first car or for uni.
