I wonder if anyone can tell me what to expect. Mum is mid stage and is now needing more help and supervision. We arrange our own carers independently. About a month ago she got a very welcome visit from an alzheimers nurse and navigator, so far so good. They are concerned about her getting lost and are introducing social services who will visit Mum. My question is: Are there any charges for this service presumably provided by the local authority? Nothing has been mentioned about payment to social services but having read the new rules I see that even if you are self funding it is still possible to ask the local authority to arrange a care home placement. There is, however, a charge and likely ongoing charges for this service. So I wondered if the same applied to social services visits and recommendations. I'm not totally against any charges as long as I know in advance what to expect. Thanks for reading, any thoughts would be appreciated.
