So Mum suddenly announced today that she wants me to 'look after her affairs' . Which is great as I have been trying for ages to persuade her to draw up a power of attorney. However, she has never actually been diagnosed with dementia and, in fact, never visits her GP. I am aware that someone has to certify that she is 'of sound mind' - how does this work under these circumstances? Also she is not really able to go to the solicitors' office - do they do home visits? Not sure how to progress this really.
