Hi all I was wondering if anyone can help me with a query concerning Day Care. My step-father has Pick's Disease and has been attending a Day Care Centre arranged through social services for the last 4 weeks, two days a week. My mum received a call last week to arrange a means-assessment - this is the first time that it has been suggested that we would need to finance his care. It was suggested by his Consultant last June and took until April to be arranged! We were unaware that we would need to fund his day care - is this always the case? Is it true that the Mental Health Trust can fund Day Care? Is there any other way of funding this? We are struggling with a very unhelpful Council - we have no Social Worker or Care Co-ordinator and are passed from pillar to post between various departments and even consultants. Any help would be greatly appreciated - he loves Day Care but right now we simply can't get our heads around what he is entitled to and what we need to fund ourselves. Many thanks.
