I need some advice again, sorry it seems to be the only thing i do on this site. Mum is in hospital at the moment and she is not happy, she is telling every one how evil I am while telling them not to tell me what she is saying because I will not go pick her up when she is told she can go home. I think they have given her something to calm her down as she appears more slurred in her speach and movement. probably to wean her off the drink !! My problem is I have been going to her banks to show them the POA that Mum signed last summer,The social worker said I have to do that now. (I have been putting it off hoping Mum would suddenly get better ) The banks Halifax and Alliance & Leicester have been great by the way. BUT I have also been told that once that bit is sorted out I need to get a solicitor to register and get an EPA. On reading other posts on this site I realise that when I do that what I have done with the banks will not count and on top of that things change at the end of this month. Oh my god have I stupidly left it all to late has any one got some advice for me. Also what is my very angry mum going to say when she finds out this bit when she still thinks she is ok even though she is one of the less able patients on the ward this year HELP !!
