Mum had alz and has just been diagnosed with cancer. Dad at exactly same time diagnosed Vascular dementia. Advised to find a care home for both. This is tricky enough, but all are concerned that Mum hasn't a LPA. Dad has with us girls as attorneys. Mum was too far before dad accepted her condition. The care homes are worried that mum hasn't got LPA. She is social services funded and doctors doing the chc as we speak. Why are care homes concerned and more importantly, who has the power over mum? Us or who?
