Hi I am totally confused and wondered if anyone else knows answers: My Dad went into a care home last December his Dementia was making it life threatening for him to be at home this was funded by local authorities. He then went into Hospital and had to have a toe removed, he was assessed as needing Continual Health Care funding and passed this assessment. He then was moved into a Nursing Home as his care needs were such. My question is what happens to his state pension, some previous conversations imply he keeps it whilst some say no it pays for his care. I might add I don't want the money, not that I am wealthy but he has since died and unfortunately his life policies are not sufficient for his burial I am at my wits end trying to raise funds and just wondered if there is any chance he has had any payments of state pension into his bank whom I have yet to tackle. He would have not had anything in way of savings and would be devastated to think we were having this trouble. Statements were not sent to him as he used to hide them, loose them worry about them etc etc. Advice eagerly sort.
