My relative has been in a long stay mental health 24 hour care home for a few years.
She was ready for home well over a year ago but they had a court order, now she is home and they are holding onto her benefits just in case things dont work out.
I understand that there is a 4 week notice in most places but she has just been more or less left and it will be 6 weeks maybe longer as she signed a blank no date notice and she had already been home for 2 weeks, they never gave her the food money they give each week and i am going to be really pushed,
anyone know the DLA rules on such as all i can find relates to old people.

Many Thanks

Hi,
The cab( citizens advice bureau) can help you they are usually very helpful. I am so sorry this is happening. Good luck with getting her benefits back.
Take care
