Morning All, My Dad's decline in to dementia was very speedy, his profound deafness masking some of the early symptoms I have concluded. The problem we now have as a family is that we have no power of attorney or health care control. We have never found out what type of dementia he has as he never gave us permission to know anything and is no longer capable of informed consent. One day this week he was found collapsed behind his bedroom door at his care home, a paramedic was called who advised A and E. Dad said he didn't want to go so the paramedic left! Does anyone know of a way that we can become his advocates and gain information relating to this health and welfare. As a family we are considering getting Power of Attorney over our mother so does anyone know of a way where she can manage Dad's affairs and in turn we manage hers which would get us to the same place.
