My father in law was hospitalised this time last year as he hadn't been taking his medication for Parkinsons as he kept forgetting. After a long stay in hospital he was diagnosed with Parkinsons related dementia and placed into a nursing home fully funded with council and NHS funding. However once in the nursing home and the new concoction of medication started to take effect he was re assessed, on a good day for him, and deemed no longer eligible for the NHS funding. At this time the family were asked to consider third party contribution to keep him at the nursing home he is in, which has been done since. Power of Attorney is now in place. He continues to deteriorate with the physical aspects of his parkinsons, he can no longer feed himself or walk and is sleeping more and more incoherent. Frustratingly the assessment does not appear to take into account his physical affects of parkinsons in relation to his ability to look after himself and take care of himself. He has to have a break from the anti-psychotic drugs as well at regular intervals where he rapidly deteriorates into hallucinations and what can only be described as his own world. His last financial assessment left a short fall of £600 per month in his care. He has money in savings but we have been told he cannot use those to pay for his care and we will have to continue to pay the third party contribution. He wasn't the money spent on his care and would be horrified that his family are paying for his care when his money sits there. Can anyone give any advice on this and the assessment process?
