Good Afternoon Everyone. I have been busy today looking at getting one of those POA, or EPA's. And I discovered the Public Guardianship Office; I have downloaded their codes of practice; its 16 chapters long; but very interesting; this is Lord Falconer's valuable work for all those with problems like we have. It also has much more information; like pensions of all kinds. I have contacted their home office in North London; and they are sending me forms to fill in; and a booklet explaining how to fill in our aplication. I think this Office; can for-fill all our needs as carers; without all those lawyers charging you an arm and a leg. In simple terms; they can give you the power to handle your own families financial affairs.........Micky.
