Coming home from rehabilitation hospital

Hi all,

just after some advice. My mum is being discharged from a rehabilitation hospital. She’s now going to need carers 4x a day instead of my dad being sole carer or go into a home.

this is all happening very quickly as well, so we don’t have time to sort anything.

we have been told she’s not eligible for continuing health care and as their joint account has more that the required amount of money they are sole funders.

is there any way we can get any help. It won’t take long before all their money is gone and then what happens to my dad as he had to give up work to care for her

thanks
