    I have worked in a nursing home for the past 10 years .I have never come across a case where familys have been forced or even asked to pay towards the care of there parents .if the old person (service user )correct term has enough money to fund themselves yes they pay but if they havent got the funds it is paid for by the local authority.even when the person is self funded the local authority make top up payments to cover nursing needs.

    Unless the individual in care has sold the property they resided in (or signed it over) and the profits of which were given to the next of kin.

    If less than 7 years have passed since that event, the next of kin is liable for the payment of the nursing home fees.

    In other words, your mam can’t sell her house, give you the £150k and then decide to live in a nursing home, you would be liable for the bill. After 7 years, the money is yours and the state pays

    Which is really sad and unfair .

    There are a lot of folks – like my parents – who worked all their life – never making a lot of money – but by being careful and prudent – they owned their home – worth a lot of money now – They never got anything from the state – no handouts – and then not much more than the basic pension
    Compare that to someone who hardly worked – milked the system – gets every handout available – and is looked after by the state until their dying day

    i agree it is sad and unfair .even when the parent signs the profits from there home over to the next of kin if the person lives for any lenght of time the money goes fast as these care homes cost between 4 and 5 hundred pound aweek to live in so the 150k dosent last that long in real terms .we have a lady of 101 in our home she has lived there for the last 17 yrs 500 pound aweek for 17 yrs a lot of money

    Compare that to someone who hardly worked – milked the system – gets every handout available – and is looked after by the state until their dying day
