I don't normally post on here as searching will usually help me find the answers I'm looking for. I think I've found my answer to the question I'm about to ask but I want to be 100% certain before I speak with DSS. I am Mum's main carer and have been since she was diagnosed with vascular dementia 12 years ago. I promised Mum a very long time ago that I would help her to keep her independence as long as I could and I feel I've kept that promise to the best of my abiity. I had to bring in outside help 2 years ago and Mum was visited by carers 3 times a day up until December. On 6th December she was found outside of her flat with no recollection of where she was or where she lived. She was detained under Section 3 of the Mental Health Act and has been in hospital ever since. The Section 3 was removed several weeks ago but she remains on a Section 117 which I have been told will stay with her for the rest of her life. Mum will be discharged to a residential care home tomorrow and this is where I would appreciate clarification. I am aware her care will be fully funded because of the Section 117 but I was told earlier this week that it also means she will keep her state pension. Is this right? I assume her DLA and Pension Credit will be withdrawn? Any help or guidance on this would be very much appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read my post.
