I am appointee for my Dads benefits who has been in care for five months now. I live three hours away and my question is am I allowed to claim money back for train fares/loss of earnings etc. Mum is also going into a care home temporarily at the moment so have a lot to sort out. I unfortunately have a job where I don't get paid for time off so realistically although I need to travel up I have financial limitations. All I can find is a quotation saying money must be spent in Dads best interests but not to my benefit. Obviously I would be keeping receipts and accounts but would this seem reasonable and legal.
