Hi Team New member and first post ! My elderly parent is in a carehome and my own deputyship application got lost - they have over 15,000 open cases on the go. A court deputy was (hopefully temporarily) appointed and he has caused much distress within the first month. He has totally cut the loving family out of the loop - financial and welfare. Post has been redirected - I thought he could only hold onto the “financial” post but he has refused to return all the other post so includes grandchildren post cards from their school trips and half term. All contact with the bank has ceased so no statements All health care questions are dressed up as “financial” so the carehome has refused - under his direction to confirm even if she had her hair washed (Mobile hairdresser visits) His first letter out to parent was not a introduction letter and a second one listing his fees - he went straight for the -I am selling the home of 50 plus years. yet the parent has 6 years of fees in cash. Last act this week was to stop the (limited) in available cash - £30 - bank card so now I cannot even buy a newspaper as requested each day for the crossword. The crossword is the only thing that works when visiting to keep him/ her amused and engaged. Any suggestions to stop his actions. I have applied to the CoP but he moves quickly - it’s only been 2 months and our loving sweet mum - is being restricted and controlled completely against the wishes.
