Social Services are pushing Dad to fill in their finacial assessment form. As Mum will be self funding for 6-12 months, do we have to complete the form now and is there any benefit to us in doing so. ? Secondly, I am going to have to start the search for a care home next week as Dad is not going to be able to cope with her. She has significant mental health problems and she cannot walk or look after herself. What sort of care home do I need ? I think I have to have an EMI bed, but does she also need a nursing home, or can a normal care home deal with her immobility ? I really don't know what I am doing.
