My 96 year old father has been resident in a nursing home for the last 5 years following a hip replacement operation. We sold his house in order for him to pay the fees and he gets the allowances that he is entitled to. However, last week he had a stroke, confirmed by the hospital, and is now back in the same nursing home confined to bed. Should the NHS now be responsible for funding his continuing nursing and residential fees? Rod
