My mother, who is 85 years old, was diagnosed with dementia in August of this year. My work gives me summers off, so I had been taking her to appointments and was with her when she got the diagnosis; I have two younger siblings, who up until this point had visited once or twice a year and would call me constantly to tell me that "we" needed to be doing more to help mum. Since the diagnosis, however, they have steamed in and taken over everything; case in point, I arrived at mum's place in October for a visit and found them both there - about to take mum to look at a day centre that they had signed her up for, along with having hired carers to come in every day. I have also found out, in conversation with mum, that she has been put on medication for her Alzheimer's, and that she is about to undergo surgery for a medical issue - none of which I had been told about by my siblings, who both have contact details for me. Mum has a lasting power of attorney in place, and all three of us are supposed to be involved in any decisions about her care, but this is clearly not happening. The final straw came last night when I called her and was told that I couldn't go and see her at Christmas because she was going to my sister's home. I am obviously being cut out of her life and any decision making about her care, and I want to know if there is anything legal that I can do. Should add that I have no money to hire representation for myself.
