That's a good thought Jennie. I had been considering how much out of her £23,250 would be used for funeral costs.I shall look into it next week. How bloody depressing and upsetting is all this, eh?
Yes, every fibre of my being says that this would be wrong.Of course he wants me to plunder the rest of her savings: he's running a business and wants her money. Much as I love my darling mum, I know that I have done enough and am no way obliged to spend every last cent we have ( certainly not mine ...
What do you guys think of this: today, whilst on a visit to my mum in her care home, I bumped into the guy who owns it and asked if I could speak to him about the fact that mum will drop below the assets threshold this summer ( she has been self funding for a year) and I wanted to know how she stood...
Hi all once again, I've made an appointment next week with a solicitor who specialises in matters regarding care home fees, to ask about a matter to do with my mum. . . . but as I can't see her till next week, and am worried sick, can I just ask the advice of you wonderful folk on here please? So, m...
Yes, I think talking to the care home owner is definitely the first step. I broached the subject before Xmas with the manager, but she just said ( as I expected tbh) 'I'm only concerned with the welfare of the residents. Funding and finance is nothing to do with me' The guy who owns it, and another ...
Hi Jenny, yes, I had already thought that I'd make an appointment to speak to the owner of the home regarding mum's financial situation. Get in early, so to speak. He is a governor of the school I work at ( which is how I came to find this excellent home), so I have a slight connection with him apar...
Thanks so much for your very helpful replies Bowlingbun. Regarding the ownership of our home, I think I will consult our solicitor. She was very helpful when I obtained POA for mum. And you are so right: I need to consider myself and my husband and daughter. I had a mild stroke seven years ago, and ...
Well, only us I guess. Mum has no recollection of living with us at all. I don't think I'd feel comfortable about making her homeless. The guilt is bad enough re putting her in the home, although I did it for her own safety. What I'm really trying to gauge is, how difficult is it to get the LA to fu...
Me, my husband and mum are joint owners of the house we live in. I understand that as such, it can't be taken into consideration for sale to pay fees ( I am 61), but I know that I won't be able to cope even if she is sent home with carers coming in?
Yes, I'm aware of the figures, but my worry is. . . . Mum has improved so much since she went into care, no doubt due to the excellent 24/7 support she has the benefit of. . . that I'm worried that when she is assessed by Social Services, they'll say she can go home with carers visiting ( cheaper op...
