Worthing man, 102, in care home crisis

A 102-YEAR-OLD man could be forced to move out of his care home in just seven months if he is not paid the £50,000 worth of benefit he is owed.

Walter Craven, who pays for his own care at the Victoria Royal Beach care home in Grand Avenue, Worthing, has not been paid the attendance allowance he has been entitled to for 16 years.

Attendance allowance is a benefit paid to those who are over 65 and are disabled enough that they need help to care for themselves.

To add further insult, Walter has also been deducted £55 off his weekly pension payments due to a lack of communication between the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) and West Sussex County Council.
