Hi Susan, we got Power Of Attorney for my mum. If you got that perhaps you could do it remotely. My mum already had a direct debit from the DWP to get the pension paid into her account. But I think this has already been suggested in a recent post, so not sure if that helps any more, as I'm not sure...
I do know that the state pension can be paid monthly directly into a bank account, but of course this begs the question how will your Mum be able to access her money because of her mobility problems. If not already done you could set up direct debits for all regular utility bills - gas, electric, w...
Hi Susan, I'm not a legally qualified expert, but have cared for 10 different people, and have a son with severe learning difficulties, now 38, who cannot read, write or do any maths. His carers CAN support him with his money, although quite honestly they are not very good at it. The main differenc...

It may be worth trying to speak to the Hotel Social Worker to ensure that this is in place. After that, carers c...
It should have been arranged before discharge by the hospital. 6 weeks of free reablement care. Then if neededlonger term Social Services should take over. Thank you so very much for this Bowlingbun; My Mum is still in hospital so I will try and talk to the hospital social worker tomorrow. Thank yo...
