Hi, new here and new to caring for my mother since my dad died a few months ago. My mother has visits from 4 carers a day, partially council funded. I am virtually living at her house as she’s vulnerable and too afraid to be left at night. Since being at her home, I’ve found that her house needs extensive repairs: a new roof and rewiring as urgent and then a multitude of other works less urgent but still important. I do have financial power of attorney. The problem is that I doubt if she can afford both a new roof and rewiring. I have no money or any chance of getting s loan. My question is, should I inform social services that the house isn’t safe? Would they be able to provide some kind of loan against the house for at least the electrics to make the house safe for her? The rewiring is a fire hazard and roof leaks and may be causing structural damage. I have arranged for a new roof to be fitted as soon as possible but it will probably leave her unable to afford the electrician to rewire. I’m really worried. Thanks in advance .
