    My mum has advanced alzheimers. She lives in a secure nursing home that sort of meets her needs. She cant do anything for herself at all, she needs complete help with washing, dressing, feeding etc. The only thing she can do is walk and even then is unsteady and has fell and broke her hip. She is aggresive too. So she needs specialised care obviously and it was difficult to find a place that would accept her and was suitable. She pays most of the fees herself but has a small amount paid for. Its very expensive but all homes that are suitable for her are expensive too.
    What happens when her money runs out ? Neither me nor my siblings can help pay for her care at all.
