My poor Mum passed away early March this year. Today,30th July, my brother got a bill for 4 weeks in a Nursing home, prior to her demise. Prior to this, the hospital social worker said that Mum [self funding] would get some financial help from our LA as she had never received the 12 weeks disregard of fees anyway. Obvs at the time we were pleased to get Mum out of hospital into a local NH, who were excellent. There is no breakdown as to how this sum has been arrived at. Has anyone experienced anything similar? it really shocked us to get a bill at this stage . . .
