My Father has been Self-Funding in a local Care Home (Lincoln) since March 2017. He has paid just over £100,00 and now his capital has gone below the threshold of £23,500. We have submitted a Financial Assessment at the end of March 2019 & my Father has been awarded NHS Nursing element of £165.56 per week. We have been told by our Social Worker that we still have to keep paying his monthly Fees (£3,400+) until the Transition period of Self-Funding to the Council paying has been sorted out. There is a 'Backlog' of these Financial Assessments.....who knows how long. Can someone please tell me is this correct that we keep paying? They have told us that my Father will be reimbursed further down the line....but unfortunately I have little Faith in these 'Privatised" Care Homes.
