My mother's in a care home with nursing (has been since January when she was advised she needed nursing care on discharge from hospital). Prior to that she had been in a residential home which was obviously a lot cheaper. She does get the £110 nursing allowance but still her savings are now dwindling at an alarming rate. At what level should I inform the local authority she's running out of cash? I'm concerned she may need to move home as there is no-one who could pay a top up fee.
