sons financial assessment

We have just had a visit from a financial assessment officer from our local council.
Our son moved into a care home over 3 months ago and an assessment was not mentioned at the time. We contacted the DLA office when he went in and payment was stopped immediately while they reviewed his situation (still havent heard anything!) . I mentioned to the visiting officer that he would be entitled to DLA for his weekend visits home. She insisted that it was only paid if people returned home for several weeks at a time. Im sure she isnt right but wasnt really sure. She also asked if our home was rented or mortgaged but surely its our son who is being assessed and not us.
I get so cross when these so called officers dont really know what they are talking about.
