I am very worried after a phone call from the social worker today. Is all my husbands occupation pension used to pay for a nursing home? or is it half his pension? I also phoned up a nursing home and i was asked if he was self funded, was the local authority going to pay or was the NHS paying. It all seems very confusing. If they take all his pension i think he will be sell funding but i will be left with nothing to life of. Nothing has been said to me about NHS paying towards his care ether. He has complex needs as well. I know its means tested. I have read going into care, but with what was said ( his pension will be used to pay ) does not go with what i read. I am that worried that i am not now putting the heating on ( and its cold) to save money.
