I have no idea how his finances are after having to spend money on medical care in France.
I do own my home and have some savings, which I need to supplement my small pension. I do not want to get involved with the social services in France, who have control of his finances. They would obviously like me to take control and organise for him to come here because they could relinquish their responsibility for him. His daughter has contacted age concern who didnt help.A couple of years ago I was told by a solicitor that it could cost me thousands of pounds to divorce him.I feel sorry for his situation but the marriage ended 9 years ago. I said I would enquire for some organisation who may be able to help him return, but as he has been out of the country for so long, there is no particular area to enquire with. My feeling is that it will not be possible, and I am worried that I could be responsible for him in France.
Any information would be helpful
She lives in Australia. He has a son in England who wants nothing to do with him.
None of us know about his finances since the social services took over after his stroke 8 years ago. He has been in different hospitals for about a year which must have been costly. He does have good pensions and originally had around 100,000 euros as inheritance when his mother died. He also has a home which I believe is in a state of disrepair, as he was living at home, with the social paying his bills, but wasn't taking care of himself. Hence an accident happened in his home and the mayor declared it unfit for habitation, and he was taken into care.
Before leaving the country we both owned and ran a country pub in Oxfordshire, and this is where he was last registered with the NHS. He has said he doesn't mind where he lives, he just wants to have people to talk to.
No he was never in the armed services and he did work for Sunblest bakery as hygiene manager for a few years.
I doubt that his daughter would come over.
No he doesn't have any religious links.
He has been affected mentally but I don't know how much. I have spoken to him on the phone and I struggle to understand him.
His speech is badly affected.
