Hi all Found this site while looking for answers, found some great advice, but none that really answers my question. My parents have been long term Ex Pats in Spain for over 30 years. Had residencias and all the paperwork but retained UK citizenship and passports. Mum died in May 2018 and I brought dad back to UK as he had early dementia for which mum had been his carer. I had the sense to get a UK POA immediately on our return for both property and finance. I had all the tests done over the next few months and he was diagnosed with vascular dementia. We kept him with us at home for over a year, until last month. He had deteriorated very quickly over the last few months and we have sadly had to put him in a care home as he was becoming a danger to himself and needed 24/7 monitoring. To the point: From the will, I inherited from my mother, not easy in itself, Spanish regulations are thorough to say the least. We are self-funding at present from his UK money and I am waiting for a Court of Protection order to deal with my father’s Spanish assets. I feel his money will not cover his care as other than dementia he is very active and healthy. I have contacted Social Services but they are pretty vague as they have not come across a similar situation before. With the house now 50/50 dad and I, and it being in Spain, they told me from the SS view lending aginst the property is intangible as it is in Spain, because of the Spanish legal system and the state of the Spanish property market. But went on to say from their perspective it is a tangible asset we have. When I asked what I could do if I could not find a buyer I was told either fund from the family or send my father back to Spain and let the Spanish services deal with him! I his 90’s, unable to speak Spanish (he never bothered to learn, mum did it all) and I am to send him back? After that statement I ended the meeting and left. I was disgusted. Any help appreciated.
