Has been in a care home of their choice for over the last 2 years, now immobile, failing fast ...... barely able to speak. Want a place that will give care and dignity, I want to get it right. Don't want to move parent, but care home have said they are unable to meet the needs of the patient. Need local knowledge please.

I think your best option is to speak to your parents GP and ask them to get your parent onto the Fast Track Pathway programme. That would remove the responsibility for you of finding an appropriate nursing home, and of any financial burden such as carers costs. You must press for this, it is a service specifically to help you and your family cope with a terminally ill relative.

I would definitely recommend looking around Barons Down. I used to work there and it is a lovely place.

Have a look at Lime Tree House in Ringmer.
You will have to match facilities to need, and to means, though.
