    John had under £13,000 savings in his name, so couldn't be self-funding. That's why the LA "negotiated" the price with the Care Home, and arrived at £525, which was our LA's ceiling. The LA paid the Home, but then invoiced me, every month, an amount, £X, which consisted of John's State Pension, plus half his private pension, less half his monthly Life Insurance Policy, less his PEA.

    It's bad enough when you're trying to wrestle with your conscience about your loved one going into care, and finding somewhere that meets their needs, and you like, without having to be able to compete with George Osborne on matters fiscal!
