Hello I hold joint power of attorney with my siblings for my dad. He has vascular dementia, and will need to go into a nursing home. Currently he is in hospital, and has a social worker assigned to him. He has assets over £23,250, made up of some cash savings and a nice house. The problem is that my siblings don't want to sell the house to pay for his care. They want to rent it out, and make up the shortfall between the income from that, and dads pensions. The problem with that is that neither of my siblings actually earn very much, and I am worried that the burden will fall on me if I agree to their plan. I want to sell the house. The sale will cover all of his care costs for the rest of his life. I am convinced that the reason they don't want to sell is more because they are protecting their inheritance than having dads best interests at heart. As social services are involved, do they have to sign off on any funding plan, and can they refuse to endorse my siblings plan and compel them to sell dads house? I'm incredibly distressed by all of this and don't know who to turn to.
