Following on from my mums recent passing I've been looking after my elderly grandparents (late 80's) who are in a retirement property. The property is owned by them and was bought through the Joseph Rowntree Trust who manage the property. Grandad had a fall the other week and is still in hospital having broke his hip. As Grandma is disabled (wheelchair bound) she has had to be moved into a nursing home. Grandad has been my Grandmas primary carer for years and from now all that will have to change. Equipment has been moved into their property to help with my Grandma while my Grandad is still weeks away from returning having not even started full physio yet. They are financially sound but I understand a financial assessment is done to determine if they need any help. I have heard that the threshold is about £23k. As they have only slightly above this amount it will soon go and the level of care they require would equate to hundreds of pounds a week. They are worried about everything they've ever earned being spent on care. Does anybody know about these financial assessments and the criteria for getting additional support?
