Hi Hope somebody can help me, I searched for a Carers forum in this was one of the few options and looked good.
Cut a long story short my step-father has gone into permanent care in a Nursing Home. Hes been in there a few weeks under NHS funded step down bed process after coming out of hospital. It gives him 28 days NHS funded but he is going to stay there.
We’re still sorting out who pays what and have recently received 3 letters from the council after a financial assessment, all varying slightly in their wording and figures. Both me and my mother cant really understand the letters and which one applies, so can anybody enlighten us please?
The 3 titles are:-
NOTIFICATION OF PRE-SERVICE ASSESSMENT - RESPITE ACCOMMODATION SERVICES
COMMUNITY CARE SERVICES - NOTIFICATION OF PRE-SERVICE ASSESSMENT
NOTIFICATION OF PRE-SERVICE ASSESSMENT - RESIDENTIAL ACCOMMODATION SERVICES
Which is the one we use if he is going to stay there? I think not RESPITE but which of the other 2 do we use then?
Also these forms have a final figure after a load of figures titled WEEKLY CONTRIBUTION is this what we actually have to pay?
Because if it is the figures done seem to make sense to me.
Any help/advice appreciated.
