Has any one got experience of cross border placements in England from some one resident in Scotland? I know it can be done if it is in the best interests of the individual and that the non means tested personal care payment can be paid by the Scotish Authority. My 89 year old mother in law lived alone in remote north of Scotland and was supported as long as possible to stay in her own home. She now needs Residential Home and it is better to be in England to be near family. She will be initially self funding but want to maximise how long her assets will last to give best place possible. The personal care payment would pay 20 to 25 % of fees so not to be ignored. Social worker doing assessment seems unsure of position.
