We got PoA for financial and property signed and sealed in the summer, thankfully, just before our dad took a real dip with his short term memory. He's now in hospital and we are not sure when and where he will be discharged to. The ward have spoken about Dad needing a care provision to get well in (he's currently still in a state of Delirium) until social services have put a care package together so Dad can go home again. My Mum has been in care since 2011 and has full funding. I'm not sure how this is assessed. She has FTD. Is this the reason? Do any people with Vascular or Alzheimer's get full funded care? I've been told that the first two weeks of respite (if needed) will be funded, but no idea what happens from there. We don't want Mum and Dads house to be swallowed up by care home fees. Is there anything I can do to protect it?
