My 94 year old Mother who had a stroke has been assessed as needing a placement with nursing care, but has been deemed not eligible for nhs continuing care. We have found a home that she loves and that myself and other family members like also. The problem is that it is just a care home, not a care home with nursing. The manager of the home has said they have several residents with exactly my Mum's needs and she is confident that she will do well there. But, the discharge team at the hospital has said she can't go there because of the nursing care assessment. Can I override them?
