Thanks both for replies. I have already done some Googling and can see some of the pitfalls. If she had a 5 bed detached house she might get near the rental income to actually cover her projected fees, but its just a tiny 2 bed bungalow, so suspect we might be lucky to get £5-600/week, therefore onl...
Hi All, Has anyone rented out property to cover care home fees? MIL struggling to accept that she needs nursing home placement and flatly refusing to consider selling her home. Someone suggested they rented out their parent's property to support her care costs, but we are very wary of stepping into ...
I don't think she will manage it, but hospital are trying all options as she has flatly refused to consider night time padding. I don't blame her as I wouldn't like it either, but as she is still adamant she wants to come home and no night time carers, pads will be the only option left ...
Just for info if it could help anyone, its one of these:

Hospital not sure if MIL will have manual dexterity to use it, but are ordering one to try before she is discharged.
Hi Bowlingbun, Thanks for reply, and those on my previous posts. I don't think MIL falls within the criteria for night time care, as I have already discussed this with her Case Co. I also work for adult care in the same local authority, so know how cash strapped we are, but will fight for everything...
Hi All, We have hospital discharge plan and case review mtg for MIL tomorrow, and one of our (and her) major concerns is how she will manage overnight without being able to get up to toilet unaided. When we saw her yesterday, she said she had been chatting with Ward Sister who said there was "someth...
Hi again, Thanks for replies and info, sorting Attendance Allowance as advised - what a dissertation that application is! Also applied for LPA and have forms ready for signing, however things have moved on a little. MIL has an Urgent Case Review at hospital next week. Case Co said its going to be at...
Hi again, thanks for replies. She does own her own home, savings wise I doubt she is anywhere near the £23K threshold, and at present no attendance allowance as she has never needed anything in the way of help or care at home, which is probably why she doesn't feel she needs it now. We are aware of ...
Have you looked into Day care type options that will pick her up, take her to a centre for meal etc. Some even do entertainment, games, exercise classes or provide bath, hairdressing or other personal care services. There may be a charge but if you are on low income or get other support for care, co...
Hi All, Newbie post - My hubby and I just coming to terms with the sudden decline of his 83 year old Mum. She was admitted to hospital on 1 May, following a heavy fall at home which damaged her neck. After spinal surgery and a long recuperation, she has regained movement and some strength in her arm...
