How do I persuade Mum to give me power of attourney? I am the only family member she has and have been caring for her and her finances for the last 4 years but her bank has suggested that perhaps we should do this, however I took mum down to her solicitors and she came out not having done it! I was not allowed in with Mum and the solicitor (in case of undue pressure I suppose) but mum came out saying she has changed her will to leave some money to her elder brothers which is fine but not what we went there for. lol Mum has made me promise not to put her into a home of any sort as she wishes to stay at home which I know will become impossible as she is a wonderer so I though perhaps she could move in with me and my family with a lot of bulding work and adaptions. Mum can afford nursing care at night for when Im asleep. I am very, very worried that if I am not given POW then Mum will be forced to go into a home rather than with me, which she would prefer.
