Have spent about 3 hours of my day filling forms in to apply to court of protection to be deputy for mam's affairs. Still lots to do as a lot of the information we do not have yet. Mam went into care suddenly about 3 weeks ago due to a sudden decline in her vascular dementia so there is still a lot to sort out. As i haven't got any power of attorney or anything at all i am starting from scratch. Just wondered how anyone else has found the process ? Also can anyone tell me when a care plan should be done as i read about this on this forum but nothing has been mentioned to us as yet. We have had no contact from social services since mam's transfer from hospital to the care home apart from her assessment when they decided she would get no help with the cost of care. Is this normal or should we be having regular contact? A couple of weeks ago my sister left four messages in a week for her to ring back but no call came. We have done everything on our own so far.
