The horrendous saga of the ongoing situation regarding the court hearings continue. Having now attended two hearings and with another one set for the next few weeks, I have a court visitor who is a Doctor /psychiatrist coming soon to see my Mother. I am presuming this is to assess her capacity and am wondering what sort of thing this will entail? Can anyone advise please and will I be able to sit in on this meeting or have to disappear into another room? Mum gets very anxious when asked a lot of questions and is not at all happy about this taking place. Its imperative she does express her feelings in this meeting as I and Mums doctor both agree she does have capacity to make certain decisions but under pressure I feel she will not do well and this could lead to her detriment at the next hearing. Basically my sister is saying Mum hasn't got capacity for any decision especially where she lives and who she sees. She is trying to get my Mum to live with her again and become deputy for finances, health, welfare etc and a Dols order. For those if you who haven't read my previous posts Mum now very happily lives with me following being financially abused and very unhappy when she was at my sisters for which there is currently a police investigation. I just need to know what is likely to happen at the assessment and tips on how best to prepare Mum and also try to help her feel relaxed and able to express herself.
