Care home deferred payment question

(3 Posts)

With her pension and income from renting out her house my mum will probably only have enough money each month to pay for half her care home fees, so we are going to have to go down the deferred payment route.
Does anyone know how it works. Do the council pay all the fee's or do we pay 50% of the fees each month ?

If I recall rightly from mil the council took all her income bar a small weekly pocket money amount and then paid the rest which was payable from her estate. Age uk will be able to advise.
Has she had an nhs assessment ? If she’s is assessed as needing nursing care the nhs will fund an amount for that but it is v hard to get. Good luck.

Thanks Sandwich. She has had a nhs assessment, but I'm not sure how much they will fund - my siblings are doing most of the meetings etc as they live a lot closer.
