I've been in the same position with you except I was the only POA and rent was never demanded and I say you shouldn't be paying rent. I would suggest to your sister that she could have your mum at her house to stay occasionally to give you a break.Thank you for your reply. I have always lived with my mother. I do not have a house of my own but would rather live in my own home and take my mother with me. My mother would find it difficult in another place otherwise I would if I was permitted move her into another (lesser) place than she currently has and is used to. However, I feel like I am being blackmailed by the other POA.
No one will tell me if I have to pay rent. I keep being referred from pillar to post. Is anyone else in this situation? I have been told by the Office of Public Guardian that my mother's Attendance Allowance is for her not for compensating me for my care.
I would never have given up my job if I had known this was the situation. The problem is my sister the other POA causing problems.
