My 59 year old brother is very poorly, not able to walk, talk, feed himself or carry out any personal care. He has been in a Care Home for the last couple of years. 6 weeks ago while they were using a hoist to move him in the shower they dropped him and he ended up in hospital with a broken hip. As his health has deteriorated he will not be returning to the same Home. He is still in hospital at the moment but they are trying to find him a place in a more suitable Nursing Home The Home he was in has asked my sister in law to pay for his room saying she should have given them two weeks notice that he was leaving! She has paid them up to the end of this month. My question is what happens to his ESA while he is in hospital (why he is on this I have no idea). I have advised my sister in law not to pay the Home anymore money as I'm worried that she will have to repay it to the DWP. Does anyone know how the system works? We have also been invited to attend a meeting at the Home to discuss his accident as there are discrepancies in the individual reports from the people involved. Has anyone got any advice on the questions we should be asking - obviously we are not happy that he was allowed to fall!
