My father has been taken into a nursing home and after some argument he got full NHS funding.
We live in the same house and the Social Worker has found it is jointly owned.
I did not fill in the form detailing my father's finances.
The social worker has demanded I fill in the form detailing my fathers finances and another detailing my finances.
I have asked the reason and she said that if at any point my father did not qualify for NHS funding the council will want to know what expenses have been incurred by both of us since he went in to care.
I can understand to some extent Social Services wanting to know about my father's finances but not mine.
Does anybody know if I have to give details of either of our finances as Social Services is paying out nothing at this stage.
I have spoken to the doctor and he has said the chances of my father being alive next year is very slim. That is when his next assessment will be due.
Also does this mean I have to keep a record of my expenditure as well as my fathers?.
