Accommodation options for my mum (and dad) after suffering a stroke

A question about : Accommodation options for my mum (and dad) after suffering a stroke

Hi all,

I wanted to see what options my mother has with regards to accommodation as she suffered a sever stroke a few weeks ago.
My mother and father live together and own a home together. Both I and my brother live abroad.
Their house is too big for them, and my mother will probably need some degree of care for the rest of her life. My father wishes to continue to live with my mum but, as mentioned, their current home is too big for them.

Mother In Law's Damp House

A question about : Mother In Law's Damp House

My Mother-In-Law turned 60 this year and she still works part time as a Carer.

What I am really worried about is she owns her own house at the moment and I would consider it to be a health hazard myself. It is very damp, and cold, and not at all nice to be in.

She needs a new boiler, her chimney is leaking, her toilet is cold and damp, her kitchen is in desperate need of modernising, it needs plastering, rendering, new double glazing. Pretty much the place needs to be gutted and started again.
