My mum has been in a care home for 5 years with dementia, three years ago she received a NHS continuing care agreement and therefore no fees were payable. Since then her condition has, as expected, steadily declined further. However, she has recently been `re-assessed` and the decision has been made to cease continuing care funding. Naturally I am bewildered as mum is now much worse than she was three years ago. Has anyone any experience or knowledge of this happening before? I am rather suspecting that this could be a funding crisis decision as I cannot understand how it could be based on her medical state, especially three years on from first being assessed as in need. Anyone out there with experience/knowledge of similar examples?
