Hello everyone. Any advice welcome, thank you. Mum, 87 and suffering from dementia, has been in a care/nursing home for three years now and has been self-funding. I am her COP-appointed deputy and had to sell her house after my father's death to fund her care to date. After this month's care fees, her total assets are now below £24,000. I informed the Council some time ago but was warned that it would be a while before anyone would contact me regarding this to do the relevant assessments. No one has been in touch as yet. I have informed the care home and they said I would have to continue paying mum's fees (from her remaining assets). Is this correct and will mum be reimbursed by the Council eventually? Her total monthly income from state and teaching pensions is around £1,200 (AA not included as I know that will fall away if and when she gets some help with her care fees). Her care fees are currently £4,400 a month. What should I do, and has anyone else been in this situation? So worrying and stressful. Thanks in advance.
