Does anyone know if there's a surefire way of finding out what a council's cap is on care costs at home, and what they're willing to pay for fully funded residential care?


DisabilityRights ... this link has been posted previously in reply to another poster on a thread started a few months ago :

https://www.disabilityrightsuk.org/char ... unity-care

Factsheet F3 : Non-Residential Charges: Paying towards the cost of your care and support at home


A previous thread ... from a different angle ... may also be of assistance here :

https://www.carersuk.org/forum/support- ... ears-38317

I will assume that CHC / NHS Continuing Healthcare is NOT a factor here ???

Any groups opposed to the cuts ?

Yes .. several disability " Action " groups out there ... just search using those three words.

For both carers and carees ... the most potent weapon ?

The words of a judge !!!

In my case a lot were disabled from birth, some had been in instituations in childhood and had been made independent into the community when the instituations closed.
So were permently severely disabled, but then as the years went on became elderly and of course their disabilities worsened.
A few had learning difficultys as well so got a bit more help and support.

Many of course were in and out of hospital but rarely was any additional help supplied, just sent home for the carers to manage.

I am sure some should have qualified for CHC Continued Health Care but were not told about it.

Social Services was firm if you can't manage with the care you have you have to go back into care, clearly not fair.
