Hi, nice to meet you! I have just asked a similar question as I am starting the process of a capacity assessment, then a financial assessment. How are you currently paying for your parents care homes, or are social services?
Hi, I have been down this road with both my relatives. I found it quicker to take bank statements etc to the LA for them to copy and give back. Depending on the circumstances, which may involve a property, I found the LA slow but did receive an assessment result in 2-3 months. I hope this helps and best wishes
The assessment should only take a few weeks. If your Dad may have to self fund any of his care, then don't pursue the final outcome as they may not backdate everything, so he _may_ only be required to contribute from the point at which the decision is made. If he has no money left and needs full state support then get onto them today, lest they are dragging their heels on purpose.
