hello things have suddenly moved very quickly. A care home went to assess my aunt in hospital yesterday and have offered her a place. The hospital asked when she could be taken and the home said any time from monday. The hospital have arranged transport for monday without speaking to Mum. Now, my aunt is self funding, mum has poa for H and welfare and finance. We do not even know the cost of the home nor have we seen a contract. The manager who assessed is not there until saturday and mum will visit. We are happy for her to go to this home however shouldn't we get the contract checked over by a solicitor? Mum is particularly worried she may become personally liable at some stage in the future for any fees or top ups when my aunt's money runs out. I thought perhaps if she signed and put "in the capacity of POA for Mrs xxx all rights reserved, without prejudice or anything else i can think of. Could anyone offer any thoughts? Mum lives 1.5 hours away, has hospital appointments Tues and Wed that for her own health sake she really can't afford to miss. If we can find a solicitor to look at it Monday would it really be that out of order to ask for Thursday as a move day? that would give mum the chance to get items of furniture there and photographs put up etc to make it home rather than trying to do it around her once she is living there. I am going to draw up a family tree and detail some of my aunt's history and likes and dislikes etc. Does anyone know of anywhere that details useful things to do when someone goes into a home? Words of wisdom very much appreciated.
