Hi Venice, as long as it is residential care with or without a nursing element then the 12 week disregard for the property applies.
The disregard only applies to the main property, however there are other disregards, some for 26 weeks, some for 52 weeks but they are unusual.
Savings and other "liquid assets" i.e. savings shares and a like are taken into account.
Dont expect Wirral DASS to do the right thing and inform you, you need to know your rights. Have a look at CRAG regulations.
