My grandfather has just been granted CHC funding for residential care home. I am wondering what happens now with the following, PIP - he gets Highest rate of both mobility and care, also ESA (I will be contacting them tomorrow to explain the change of circumstances) as Grandad has gone to permanent residential care. 
He is 55 years old (I know young but very ill) I am wondering will the mobility element end? As grandad likes to go out for long drives and we have a van which his wheelchair just pushes on to. Obviously without this mobility money the van would be way too costly etc and I am just trying to work things out in advance. He is only young so I don’t want him confined to a room but at the same token realise he needs a high level of care
Thanks in advance
