Hi hope someone can offer me some advice on CHC funding and choices of care, My Mother has Lewy Body Dementia and is currently in hospital as she fell and broke her arm, her condition has deteriated & she is no longer mobile & very confused. She is due a full assessment this week but I am extremely concerned that the NHS & Social Services can make the decision to put her in a nursing home if she does get full funding as she lacks mental capacity and we do not have poa on her welfare. The family would like her cared for at home but if she needs 24hr care this will obviously be more expensive than a nursing home. Has anyone been in this situation and got 24hr care at home? I am worrying myself sick thinking the decision will be out of our hands. We have also been told we cannot top the payment up for care at home or in care.
