Can anyone advise me re Care Homes? My Mum lives 100 miles away and is deteriorating fast. On Aricept but doesn't seem to help now. We were waiting for sheltered housing in our area but think she has gone past this. She has had an intermmediate care package for 3 months and is to have a social services assessment next week. We know her house will have to be sold to fund care but what happens when the money runs out? Would like her to be somewhere really nice but cost is unbelevable-about £1,000 per week! Is that the going rate? When funds run out would she have to move somewhere cheaper? Any advice would be so helpful.
