NHS Accident - Need advice urgently My darling Mum had an accident whilst in hospital - up until then she was recovering well from an infection. She needed surgery and I've been told that she may never walk again and might need to go into a nursing home. This event has fast forwarded any potential plans for mum to go into care. She still knows who I am and is making some progress with the physios, but the reality is that she may end up bedbound. A year ago she had been assessed by SS as needing residential care. This changes everything - do we get any help with the fees from the NHS?
