    Hi all, I've just joined so very new to this!

    My Dad has been through the first meeting for CHC, we are now waiting for the social worker meeting. My Mom is extremely worried about the financial questions she will be asked. My Sister and I pay for my dads nursing home at the moment, my Mom has her home that she once shared with my Dad and minimal savings. Will they make her use any of this? Also will my dads pension be used.

    Thanks

    Kati

    Hi,

    The house will be disregarded as your Mum needs to live there. If your Dad's assets are low then the LA will step in but your Dad will have to use his state pension and half of any private pension as his contribution to care costs. If he is receiving attendance allowance this will cease. Only your Dad's assets will be taken into account in a financial assessment.

    If however your Dad is funding himself, then attendance allowance will continue.
    You are under no obligation to fund your Dads care.

    There are no financial Q's asked at a CHC meeting. If he meets the criteria and his costs will be paid, and he will still receive his pension.
