I did post this in the Financial forum but only got one reply.. Hence placing it in this forum to see if anyone else can offer suggestions? My mother-in-law has just been admitted to a residential care home for an interim period until a full assessment is carried out. The local authority have provided details of other homes, but the only two that fall into the authorities funding bracket are too far away for any of her friends and most relatives to get to, meaning that she would be unable to see anyone she knows for long periods of time. The current residential home is great and within very easy commuting distance to the village she lived in. However to get a single room requires a top-up fee, which we cannot afford. Does anyone know of any charities that might be able to assist with this?
