I wonder if someone can help me. Dad finally agreed he can no longer care for Mum at home and put her name down for a nursing home which we went to see and have had good reports about. She is presently in a geriatric unit. Dad just phoned to say the social worker has been on the phone to him to say that it would be better if he had more than one choice of nursing home because there is no funding at the moment and when a room becomes available the funding has to be available at the same time or you lose the room. He thinks the funding will be available soon but has talked my Dad into going to see another nursing home although we were quite happy with the first one. (My Mum will be self funding). Not too sure if I'm making much sense but I know this social worker tries to save every penny he can. Is he right in what he is saying.
