Hi, This is my first post to the forum. Thank you for taking the time to read this. My Father entered care in 2010 following a serious head injury resulting in a range of neurological conditions affecting his mobility and memory. The fees for the care home were extremely high and his home was entered into a deferred payment agreement. We applied for CHC but unfortunately failed in our application to secure funding. Dad made the decision to sell his home to pay for his care due to the accrued debt and the cost of it standing empty. Not long after Dad sold his property the local council deemed him well enough to enter extra care housing where he is going to have to claim housing benefit to pay for the fees. The scheme allows him to have his own flat but with care services on site. We are in the process of applying for benefits at the moment. My question is, is it right that Dad has had to lose his home only to be transferred to extra care housing when the money has ran out? Has anybody else been in a similar position? Many thanks.
