As I am new to this site I am probably asking something that has already been discussed elsewhere on here! As Mum will have to go into residential care soonish..and Dad is already in a Nursing Home..does that mean her house HAS to be sold? I watched a programme the other week about this but found it a little confusing..as to who gets full funding etc. I have thought about her moving in with me but my plans for the future would make that impossible I think...maybe I am too selfish but these plans have been in place for many years now and involve my youngest daughter too..we are moving to Spain due to a severe dislike for what this country has become and the inability to survive here financially for much longer... and have been looking forward to it for a long time. I couldnt take her with me as she has never liked the heat and would swelter out there. I feel angry that they should have to sell up after paying into the system for so long....as I am sure many of you do too. It almost makes me want to get her to remove all her savings from the banks now!!!...but I know that too would be wrong. Why is life made so hard..when it could be so much easier!!!!!
