My mum is in a care home, she has mixed dementia. She is LA funded/Nursing care allowance. My sister and I have both LPA's for Finance and Health. I have just received a letter from her care home stating that due to a recent case where an appointee had fraudently used a residents money, the Social Services had been in touch with the home for them to ensure that all residents receive their £24.90 weekly allowance with which to pay for their personal toiletries, clothes etc. In order to comply with the Social Services and the Homes obligation they would like all the weekly payments to be paid to the Home where they administer them for the residents. We will be allowed to view any expenditure made on behalf of the residents. Does that mean the Care Home is now going to be responsible for buying my mum's clothes etc which my sister and I already buy, buy birthday cards etc that we buy for her grandchildren on her behalf, will we have to supply the Home with the addresses, dates of birth of her fifteen grandchildren and nine great grandchildren and possibly of her eight children! And what is the point of us having LPA for Finances if the Care Home want to do it?
