Greetings, Lately I was reading some letters in a Sunday newspaper in which people ranted about the poor support they received when they tried to act on their LPA and use a sufferer's savings to pay bills or for a care home. Some banks were good, others were obstructive. I'm approaching the stage when mum and I will need to move forward in our lives. We both need more company - she in a care home with similar people and things to do, me in...well, anywhere really. It's a wrench, but it must be done. Does anyone have any stories or advice on how to deal with banks, regarding the LPA? The LPA has been registered, so do I need to inform the bank as well, or give them a copy to be on the safe side? Does anyone have any practical tips on how to manage the payments to the care home when a relative is moved in? Something like a joint account or a right to sign on behalf of someone with Alzheimer's? Perhaps it all comes down to which branch of which bank. Any advice, so I don't have to get any lawyers involved or anything drastic like that, would be gratefully appreciated. Take care, everyone.
