UC & LCWRA entitlement if in a nursing care home.
Hi, sadly my 38 year old son had a cardiac arrest & suffered a hypoxia brain injury September 20 & is now severely disabled with complex needs. He is due to be discharged soon from a rehabilitation hospital to a neurological rehabilitation unit in a nursing care home. He is currently receiving UC & LCWRA ( I am his appointee). Can anyone advise if he will continue to receive these -his care is to be fully funded NHS Continuing Health Care. I thought I would ask here before informing the DWP of this change as I had endless incorrect information from their contact centre staff before finally becoming an appointee & getting my son the benefits he has. Thank you.
