My Mom has mixed Vascular @ Alzheimer's Dementia.Resident in a Nursing Home. I am Deputy for Mum through the Court of Protection for Finance & Property. Awaiting info from Solicitor as I applied for Health & Welfare also at same time. Problem is my Mom married 7 years ago and my step-father is challenging my request to move Mom to live in village near the rest of her family who can visit several times daily. The crux of the matter is my Mom is self- funding and I have asked the Social Worker what jurisdiction they have to keep her in a distant home when I ,in my authority as Deputy pay her care fees and Mom asks her visitors daily to take her back home and always mentions the place where she was born and lived till she retired. My step-father is residing in the home that I purchased with my mother when she retired Any help would be most welcome as I am worried about using the solicitor and creating a huge bill.
