Mums been getting attendance allowance since I took over her care in May 2016, and like many on here my only income is £62.70 carers allowance for what is effectively over a 100 hours working week as if Mums left alone she will try to get up and move on her own.
Thanks for the replies, I'm guessing this is just another of those postcode lottery moments. I assumed as Linda kindly stated that a District Nurse would come out and do an assessment, but the letter states they will only come out after the three day diary has been completed. The hospital sent Mum h...
Has anyone else been able to get free incontinence pads? I was told my Mum should be eligible and was referred by my GP. Today I've received a horrendous form to complete, they want Mum to wee in a jar for three days to measure how much she's doing, describe the type of stool type along with times e...
No, you are being helpful and I've done a fair bit of research into the court of protection.
I'm just worried about my Sister, will she suddenly be giving her partner and kids massive handouts on birthdays and Christmas at the expense of Mum, while still not taking the time to even visit her?
Hi, I live with my Mum and despite several attempts to overturn it she has been assessed as not having mental capacity. My Dad passed away over a year ago and we still haven't seen a penny of the estate. As stated I live with my Mum and quit my job to care for her full time. We're now told by solici...
We don't have two independent assessments...The Dr who spent 20 minutes with Mum completely contradicts what her own GP said...The DR who says Mum isn't capable forgot to bring a pen, went back to his own car to get paper, and also went back a third time as he forgot his questions. Not to mention he...
Hi, I've received a report from an independent DR today who says my Mum doesn't have testamentary capacity, he went as far as to say she doesn't understand simple yes/no questions. In complete contradiction to what our own GP says. This cost us £250 on the say so of our solicitors who wouldn't accep...
Thank you Pet66, you really are a kind soul, as are most on here. I've changed solicitors who said the same as the 1st. I plan on talking to my Mums GP as the solicitors DR has overridden her statement about Mum's mental capacity. Hence no POA etc.. As things stand the solicitor says Mum can't give ...
Thank you all for the replies I have received.... I don't plan on any holidays or diamond rings:-) Mum pays for my car, the petrol, tax, insurance and MOT...it's our way of getting around and out the house. We also eat out every day, which I do complain about the cost even tho its Mums money, but ag...
Thank you all, normally it's family saying she's not fit and I want this and that. But it's our solicitor... Both me and my sister agreed Mum is fit, but the solicitor has put us through hell, our own GP wrote a letter stating Mum is fit and capable...Not acceptable we have to pay for a specialist? ...
