Advice re moving area for care home
Can I please ask if anyone has had any experience with re-locating their parent to a care home in a different part of the uk …in particular how one council area then funds the cost ( or part) in a different region.
My mum is yet to go into a home, but the decision coming very soon based on current circumstances, we have read and been told a move to another area is possible , but just trying to get our heads round the logistics of how this would get organised as the local authorities presumably have limited information / links and contacts about homes in other parts of country.
Does the family pretty much have to do all the ground work in sourcing options for the home – or is there a network of information re which homes accept care packages from other regions etc ?
Many thanks in advance for any tips or advice
