Hi everyone, yes it's me again. Don't get much chance to visit this site as often as I'd like, BUT at least I get sense, help and a laugh, especially from Jude, Sheila and Norman, when I do. So, here goes:- As per the subject matter, can anyone please give me any information at all about 'gifting', claiming attendance allowance and 'Deed of Variation'. I've seen these items mentioned regularly in different threads and replies and would like to know something in easy to understand, plain simple English please, not some solicitor gobbledy-gook (which costs me £130.00 an hour, for heaven's sake!!). As I've mentioned before, my dad's house has sold and the proceeds now apparently go to the Court, for the local authority to make a charge for my mother's care home fees. THE SYSTEM STINKS BIG TIME!!!! By the way, check Norman's thread about lobbying your MP re free care for mental health persons.
