Hi has anyone any experience of moving your relative to another care home and being told you have to give 28 days notice? i got my mum into one of two care homes in our area that cater for dementia with 24 hour nursing care. I needed to get her discharged from hospital and into somewhere that would give her some care and tlc so i took a chance on the more expensive one as the other home wasn't taking anyone as they were undergoing refurbishment. She is funded by social services and continuing nursing care and i pay the top up of £400 pw -from a small amount of money saved up, i was hoping to get CHC and have requested an assessment for it but I've been told theres a waiting list of two months. We can't keep paying £400 per week for more than about 10 weeks and mum has been in the home a month, so, bearing this in mind and the time it may take to apply for CHC (even though she may not get it), i enquired at the other home if they had any vacancies and they said they can take mum. When i spoke to the home that she's in to tell them i can't continue paying their top up fees and was looking to move mum this is when they told me that theres a 28 day notice period Having looked at their contract it does say 28 day notice and also that theres a trial period on all placements of six weeks - so I'm thinking that after the six weeks i can move her What do people think? Can anyone advise me?
