Hi can anyone explain what is involved in this process in respect of benefits or residential care fees? My husband has only recently been diagnosed with AD and is still working as am I on part-time so to be full time basis. We have a joint bank account, an ISA each and a bond which although in our joint name holds an inheritance for our daughter left in a will to her by an Aunt. When or if my husband needs to be means tested do they base their decisions on just his finances or joint? We no longer have a mortgage & they house is jointly owned. We do not have a large amount of savings. I want to be able to concentrate on my husband and help him through the changes we are going to face without the added stress of financial problems caused by wrong decisions made early on. We are going to sort out relevant LPA & make a will each we know that is v.important.Any suggestions?
