As lots of you know, my mum has dementia. She is now 91, also has chronic COPD, is in a nursing home with the maximum funding available with a contribution paid by her and a top up paid by my brother.
I am having a meeting with the person responsible from the local council and someone from the home 'to check that her condition hasn't changed!' Considering she is on the maximum contribution in the circumstances what, then, is the point of reassessing her. She is never going to get any better (she is not Ernest Saunders or Greville Janner!)and they will not contribute anymore so what, exactly, will have changed.
It seems to be an added burden that the SW could manage without!
