aileen Posted September 6, 2013 Share Posted September 6, 2013 Fiz, try to encourage your mother to accept help before she reaches crisis point. I'm a little puzzled as to why your parents' house is being put on the market for sale. I thought that if Social Services contributed towards the costs of care and the client owned a property, but the client and/or another elderly family member was living in the the property, a charge was taken over the property (ie the property did not have to be sold). Don't forget that certain benefits are available: Council Tax rebate; Attendance Allowance and possibly some sort of carers benefit for your mother. Even if your parents are not eligible for these benefits immediately they may be eligible in a few weeks or months time. I suggest that you visit a CAB or ask for advice from an organisation such as The Alzheimers Society. Alternatively, there is a lot of information online.
