Hello, yes, I'm the daughter

Went home to check on the house (building works happening all over it) and most of the post was for dad. Well, for me, about dad. Charming.

Apparently he hasn't been financially assessed. I have emailed all the evidence they have asked for that I have. To be honest, I don't have much. I also included notes on his outgoings (again, not much) and I also told them about his legal case which certainly won't be adding to his 'fortune' of nothing.

I also had a contract for the LA paying for his care which I've signed - it clearly states on it that signing does not make me liable for payments, but the financial assessment from the LA says that if I don't reply to them, they will use what they have (I did already send them everything) and if it's lacking they assume I will pay for everything. I'm fairly sure this contradiction is empty threats.

All this AFTER I've had email confirmation the LA is funding dad. It's a*s about face, but I can almost believe this is standard.

Why is everything such a farce with government organisations ?!! Hopefully It all will come out in the wash but its such a pain in the bum dealing with it all. Fingers crossed sorted out properly for you soon 🤞
