Care needs assessment

Dear all,

Mum is currently in a nursing home, placed there after a short hospital admission. Prior to that she was at home with a myriad of different carers. This admission I see as the crisis that was always going to happen. Next week we begin the process that is planning for mums care going forward. A visit has been booked with the social worker. How do I prepare for this so that I can achieve the best outcome for mum. I would really welcome your thoughts on this from your experiences.

Thank you.

Before a social worker gets involved, mum should have an NHS Continuing Healthcare Assessment, to see if she is entitled to entirely free care. Ask Google for full information.
Does mum own her home or have more than £23,000 in savings?
