Hello. This is my first post here. My mum has dementia and has been in a care home for 2 years. She's been self funding but has just dropped below the financial threshold so will receive local authority support. I've agreed to fund the top up payments but only because I was told by her social worker that as I have power of attorney I can do what I need to with her money. Otherwise we couldn't afford it. Has anybody else been given similar advice?
