  • What does this clause in a Will mean?

    I give, devise and bequeath all of my estate both real and personal and after payment of debts to my trustees to hold the same upon trust and to pay the income to my wife for her lifetime and after her death from the capital and income i give....

    Background info - the husband (will clause above) has died and his wife is in care. They own their house as tenants in common (50% each).
    Does this clause in his will mean that all his estate passes to his children (the trustees and beneficiaries) upon his wife's death but in the meantime she inherits nothing from him apart from the income?
    This meaning that the care home cannot ask her to use his assets to pay for her care?
