Welcome to the forum POAMIL.
Different care homes have different contracts. The contract for Mum's home had a section referring to top ups and I just crossed through it. The home only takes self-funders, not those funded by the LA (whose rates are a lot lower than the home's fees), so if Mum's funds run out she'd have to move elsewhere. Rather than the home 'trying it on' I saw it as them making it clear that they don't accept LA rates. They had no problems with the clause being ruled through. As above, care homes are businesses so they like to have assurances that their fees will get paid.Thank You MaNaAk, I wonder why it's not the same for everyone who has POA.
