Can any one give me some advice for a friend? She has lived in a house all her life with her parents (and still does), her father passed anyway some years ago and in recent years her mum has developed dementia. Within the last year the deeds were transferred from her mothers name to hers ( her mum stills lives there, with her). Due to a recent fall and her dementia increasingly getting worse her mum has been taken in to hospital. Now my friend feels it is in everyone's interest for her mum to go into a carehome but where does she stand with the house and care home fees? Social works at the hospital are putting her under pressure and advising the house can be taken to pay fees? Any advice would be much appreciated.
