Hi everyone Can anyone help with the clarification on criteria for care funding? I have read the Alzheimer's information sheet, which is very helpful and like many others I am thankful to people like Barbara Pointon who have battle for 'wrongs' to be righted - just wondered if anyone could give any personal experiences and information. I know that different health authorities state their own local criteria but in general there should not be a vast difference or I may be wrong! 1. Nursing care in a nursing home. If someone requires to be moved to an EMI nursing home from a general nursing home because of challenging behaviour and a subsequent risk to staff and other residents, does this indicate that they may qualify for the highest band of nursing funding by the NHS (formerly only the middle band had been granted)? 2. NHS continuing care. Does this mean that all aspects of care are provided free of charge? What determines if a person is the responsibility of the health authority? I know a different assessment would have to be done for this but again I would like to know what the general criteria is. I am not being mercenary about our situation, as all the money in the world couldn't give Brian his health back, just wanting what we are rightfully entitled to. would really appreciate any info. Thanks.
