Will the questions ever stop you ask yourselves? It doesn't look like it - the more I learn the more questions I have!! Well, today's question is about how we go about claiming EPA for mum. Dad really needs to as she doesn't understand money anymore - we've already took her bank card off her but she still remembers where he hides the savings books and at anytime is walking around with hundreds of pounds in her handbag! Heaven only knows how much money she's given out so far. Plus there are benefits that they will both be entitled to but mum won't sign the forms as she thinks there is nothing wrong with her. I don't really want to go down the appointee route with benefits, as that will necessitate a home visit - given that mum used to work for them, it would be very distressing for her to be visited by them now. EPA seems the only option but given that mum probably won't consent to this either, what can be done? Would we be able to get it without her consent if we can prove her diagnosis? I looked on the PGO site but it just confused me - isn't taking much these days!
