One of the NH we viewed nearer to home now has a bed for Dad. They have been to assess him today and said they would take him and I am going to take him to look round on Monday I do have to pay £20 a week top-up fee for him to have a bed there but I am spending at least £30 a week on petrol at the moment to visit him so I dont mind that. Some things that are still not sorted are: No contact from SS who are supposed to do an assessment of his finances. No contact from Pension Service...I called them on 1/4 to tell them he had gone into a NH at that I wanted to become his appointee. They told me I would get an appointment by letter within 2 weeks and to continue to collect his pension for him until something else was sorted. I have done so but his money has remained the same and I think he may be getting benefits that he may not now be entitled to now he is in a NH...but I cant ask as I am not yet his appointee!! I cant find any paper work that breaks down his payments but I think he may have been getting DLA and AA but I'm not sure. Hope we can sort out the finances soon.
