financial asessment

All about money
we have had a financial assessment. To decide if we have to pay for daily visits from carers, all our savings were taken into account - both mine and my husband's, then divided in half.
However, if my spouse were to go into residential care, none of my own savings would be included in the calculations.
I find this a bit crazy - surely it encourages spouses to get their disabled spouse into residential care so that their own savings are not touched at all.
It's all a muddle. If you are entitled to NHS Continuing Healthcare it's all entirely free!! However that is a postcode lottery, but well worth applying for if someone has severe needs.
