Oh Pam it's a nightmare but I think Nitram is right go for Dolls . So sorry you facing all of this my lovely . Have send you an e mail back this morning. Maybe speak with the Alzheimer's society or your admiral nurse as they should be able to clarify things for you. SS do try it on xxxxxxxThank you nitram, this all too much for me, l do not understand why one person tells me something then another tells me something else!!! l would have thought having been married to my hubby for 51yrs, l have looked after him for 8yrs with this horrible Alzheimers, why don't they just take him into care without all this extra stress for me.
Hi. I haven't done it for health only for my husband's finance and his affairs as my husband doesn't have the mental capacity and we had no lasting POA set up. The Court of Protection told me that I didn't need the one for his health as I am his next of kin I would be expected to be asked to make decisions for him anyway and I would only need the one for health if I disagreed with the doctors' decisions for his treatment. The forms and supporting information you need to complete for application to the Court of Protection are quite complicated but I did do it myself which saved about £500 a solicitor would charge. The court of protection did help me by telling me which forms I needed to complete. The whole process took about 4 + months to complete. Hope this helps you.Has anyone applied for POA for health, my hubby does not have mental capacity, so l have to go through the courts, l have been told it takes a long time, how long?
Unfortunately, it's not unheard of for a social worker to be "confused" or misspeak about what is required. I think everyone else is right - at most the care home will require a Dols application.Hello jeniferpa l have been told by SS that l must have it, my hubby is going into a CH for l week respite, if he wants to go home they can not keep him there, unless l have Deputyship.
