    My Mother was widowed in February this year and has stage six Alzheimers Disease. We are in the process of obtaining deputyship from the Court of Protection which is different from the EPA's that were applicable prior to the 1 October 2007. I am curious to learn of the experiences of anyone who has applied for this since 1.10.07. I have been led to believe it can take some months, during this period my mothers finances, including penions and access to them to pay for her care is frozen.

    Therefore, I am paying for her care in a private nursing home at present which amounts to around £1000 per week so any advice would be very welcome.

    There's another thread about the Court of Protection, entitled "Your experiences of the Court of Protection" so hopefully they will be combined soon into one thread.

    Meanwhile, just hold tight!
