People whose placement in a nursing home is funded by NHS Continuing Healthcare are not asked to contribute to their support. Legislation provides that where any costs of qualifying services are borne out of public funds the disability benefits (Attendance Allowance, Disability Living Allowance and Personal Independence Payment) are withdrawn after 28 days.</p> more like this
