I find this odd but do not want to interfere. My daughters mother in law has carers coming four times a day to care for her. When I asked about the costs they do not know and have not been bills yet. She is self funding all she said the bill will be very high. I would have thought they should be told how much the care package is going to cost. She also does not get benefits. The first one was declined and he has submitted another one and got help from age concern. In my opinion the son is too soft in his approach when dealing with local authority and social services. He said there is very little support and help going through the maze. I can only listen to my daughters complain and cannot offer much advice.
