Well, I didn't manage to stay away too long before the proverbial hit the fan - it had all been going too well. Mum finished work in January - technically under early retirement but really because she'd be fired if she didn't. Anyway, we've just had a letter stating they've kept on paying her slaary up until June (their mistake) and now they want over £4,000 of us to pay it back! The argument is that although it's there mess up, she should have known she wasn't entitled to it and so she has to pay it back. Dad doesn't know what to do and I'm dealing with it because I work for the government as well (mum used to). It's just frustrating to have to argue this out now when we've enough on out plates - they knew her condition when she finished and it's their balls up (excuse me!). We're held up at the moment getting the POA registered so I don't know if the money is even sat there - probably not as financial recklessness is part of her condition (I'm sure they won't believe that) and dad only restricted access to her accounts in the last couple of months. It's nothing major but it's just extra hassle you know? On the plus side we've had a visit from a CPN - she just did a quick memory test and left but I guess it's a start.
