1. Q&A: Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) - Thursday 27 Sept, 3-4pm

    Power of attorney (LPA) is a legal tool that gives another adult - often a carer or family member - the legal authority to make decisions on behalf of someone with dementia, if they become unable to themselves.

    Our next expert Q&A will be hosted by Flora and Helen from our Knowledge Services team. They will be answering your questions on LPA on Thursday 27 September from 3-4pm.

    You can either post questions >here< or email them to us at talkingpoint@alzheimers.org.uk and we'll answer as many as we can on the day.

    My dad has frontotemperol dementia and is in a nursing home. My mum and dad are divorced but were residing in the same home until he was sectioned (there is so much more to this i could write a book but i will get to the point!) Basically my mum is left with the house to sell she begged me after dealing with cop herself with my grandparents not to do it for dad i so wish i had . The house was sold in march and we are still waiting for a COP 2 form to be completed. No body seems to be able to tell us what is happening my mums solicitor says nobody is telling her anything and the buyers of mum and dads house are threatening to pull out. Has anyone had a similar experience? And how or who do i contact to help us. Im worried about my mum and my dad would actually hate this!
