Hello. My first post so please forgive any gaffes. I seek some advice please and I hope this forum is an appropriate place to ask. I am nearest relative to an aunt for whom I also have POA (EPA). She has been in hospital for some months. She may enter nursing care relatively soon. Alzheimer's is a part of her diagnosis. I live 300 miles from her. I try to visit for weekends at month/6 week intervals but I have a young family and it can be hard; we have also recently moved house so have a lot on. I have siblings who also have young families but live abroad. I would like to ask them to help out with visiting, maybe once a year each, to ease the burden on my family and also to allow me to catch up on POA-related paperwork. That sort of help has not been offered so before I request more directly I'd like to get the facts straight. 1. Can I legitimately claim expenses for my 300 mile trips? Sometimes POA duties are involved as well as visiting, e.g. checking up on her house, medical reviews, house valuations, checking out nursing homes. Would that make a difference? Accommodation costs are generally minimal as once in the area I stay with a relative from the other side of my family. 2. (and perhaps this is the crux) can I legitimately offer to my siblings that their travel expenses could be met if they were to visit her, as I wish to ask them to do? Any advice would be gratefully received. Thank you.
