Hope you get further advice and from more then 1 solicitor.I had the old Enduring Power of Attorney and had problems with my solicitor over what was valid use of monies.It is quite a specialised area.I thought the new LPA had to be registered.

<t>I am an night owl too! I agree that empathy is either in you or not.I have experienced many care assistants who look on caring as a job and have no empathy whatsoever. On the other hand there are a remarkable few who are fantastic and look and listen and aren't afraid to give the appropiate hug.Y...

<t>Some Drs and nurses seem to think it is a failure on their part if any one dies.

<t>It is the start of 'the long Goodbye' which is very difficult.My husband took ill when my son was 18 and he 'lost' the dad he knew and couldn't hold a proper conversation with him any more.When he died 8 yrs later, he became very depressed. Luckily he could talk to me and got counselling.It is di...
<t>If you are prepared to pay, ring round other nursing homes and see if you can get him in. The problem is that they often have only so many Respite beds as they obviously would prefer long term residents.It might depend if you want it on a regular basis or just now and then. Ask them if they can l...
There should be a Wheelchair Clinic in the area who assess her wheelchair needs and I think they can weigh people. Again ask your GP or Social Services who can find out.
