Lpa suitability of attorneys
Posted: Sat Mar 03, 2018 4:18 pm
Hi all, my husband and I are setting up health and financial lpas for his mum who is 88 and still 90% all there. She asked us to after the awful problems her brother had over his wife's care. The problem is that my husbamd has a younger brother with severe mental impairment due to a combination of ptsd and schizophrenia. He has a council tax exemption so it's officially recorded. Can he be an attorney for her if he demands to be? We would rather he is not as he can be quite unstable and irrational at times (he is never ever violent and is only a danger to himself). Ethically we have to inform him as he is her other son. Could he challenge it and would his mental impairment disqualify him anyway? There is nothing out there even on the govt sites.
