    Yes she should be able to buy it.

    The other question I'm not sure about. I think it depends on whether he will still be entitled to DLA HRM.

    Can you repost this question in the Benefits section as there are more knowledgable people (about benefits) on there?

    I'd rewrite the question slightly too... "My father who currently gets DLA HRM which enables him to get a Motability car is looking like he will be going into a Nursing Home. Will he still be entitled to DLA HRM and will he be able to keep his car?" ...something along those lines should do.
    Motability Car History
    05/09-05/12; Nissan Qashqai 1.5 Diesel Tekna; 36,500 miles; avg 41.1mpg
    06/12-07/15; Ford C-Max 2.0 Diesel Titanium Powershift; 35,400 miles; avg 37.8mpg
    07/15-09/17; Skoda Octavia 1.6 Diesel SE-L DSG; 28,200miles; avg 43.9mpg
