I am actually asking for advise for a friend whose mother also has dementia. Her mother was evicted from her first nursing home due to challenging behaviour and placed into a mental health institute. After a long search another nursing home was found that was willing to accept her mother as a resident. Due to the fact that this was the only carehome that would accept her mother she was informed by the trust that her mother was entitled to full funding under the mental health NI order. Things have taken a drastic turn this week. She recieved a bill for 16'000 one day and a letter the next saying she actually owed the trust 21'000 Her mother has no assets and my friend and her husband are working low paid jobs. She is in a terrible state and doesn't know how she is going to find the money to pay this large bill and she is very worried her mother will no longer be able to stay in the nursing home where she has settled in fantastically. Any advice would be great no matter how small. Many thanks in advance..
