Had a call yesterday from the independent assessor to say she had visited mum last week to assess her. She seemed surprised that neither I or my sister, we both hold LPA for both finance and welfare, had not been informed by the carehome that they had applied for this. My question is this, why would the home have instigated this? Mum barely gets out of bed and she is far from a problem resident. I am worried that there may be a financial motive here and that they could be about to ask for more money. Mum is cared for at the LA rate, no top up is required and she has lived there for 4 years.
