    Which section was he under - was it section 3? Then the good news would be that he should be funded under section 117 aftercare. Contact the council and the care home, someone ough to know.

    The GP should have details of his discharge and whether he was under a section 3 or not.

    If it is established that it was a section 3 don't pay anything and be extremely careful what you sign.

    On a section 117, unless you demand something like a better room than offered, all care fees have to be met by the CCG/LA.

    It was a section 2 and now it is DOLS at least that what was said at best interest meeting when he was in hospital. I have been in touch with council but still waiting for a reply

    Go on line if possible and go to Independent Age web page and go to Care home fees all the information is there. I am going through the same. Hope this helps
