My mum&dad worked hard to buy their house many years ago, unfortunately my father died at a young age,he left the house to my mum, who struggled to bring us three children up, but done her best. At the age of 90 she became unwell with bad back pain, we took her to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with myloma, this is a cancer which eats her bones. Social services told us we were unable to look after our mum in her own home, as no carers would come in because of her condition. So she is now in a nursing home and is self funding, you may ask how she affords this, well she has had to sell her home which she has had for over 65 years. All the money will be gone and there will be nothing for her children. Do you think this is right? If you live in a council house you get to go in a care home for free. This is unfair and needs to change. People from different countries come to the uk, bring their parents with them,put them in a care home, who pays for them? The council! Do you think this is right? My mum worked till she was in her70s, paid for her house,bills,brought three children up, and is now dumped in a nursing home, all her belongings gone,her house..gone. This isn’t right, please sign to change this.
