    Hello,
    My name is John. My 86 year old Mother has just been diagnosed with dementia. My brother & I are attorneys on her EPA [written in the year 2000] and her LPA [written 2013].
    Any help we can get will be useful [no matter how seemingly trivial!]
    Thanks,
    John :rolleyes:

    If you post with specific queries you will get plenty of answers.

    However

    " My brother & I are attorneys on her EPA [written in the year 2000] and her LPA [written 2013]."

    If the EPA is not registered with the OPG it can be used as long as your Mother retains capacity and it does not contain a clause preventing it's use with a capable donor.

    If the EPA is registered it can be used if the donor looses capacity.

    If the LPA is for Property and Financial Affairs the EPA should have been declared and revoked.when the LPA was registered.

    If the LPA is for Health and Welfare it can be used in conjunction with the EPA

    My mother's banks all accepted that I could manage her affairs with her consent before the EPOA was registered. I applied for registration when it became clear that she was losing capacity. This seems to be in line with the official guidance.

    Thanks, Grannie G.....



    ....you are so right - there's always someone worse off than you. Always look for and seek out the positives - I do! :)

    Advance Directive.

    Hello,
    My Mother's strong wish is not to have her life prolonged when the ravages of dementia become overwhelming [what ever "overwhelming" is and when it's reached]. Can anyone suggest any wording to include in her Advance Directive or where I can find some help with wording?
    thanks,
    John :confused:
