Mums first cousin who had dementia like my mother died at the age of 94 last year, she was single and had no children. A will was done exactly 2 weeks before her death leaving most of her estate to a carer/confidant and a part to charities, the signature is just a scribble, so I'm thinking, did she have capacity to do this will, was she possibly coaxed in some way? I was told that sometimes these events are recorded on video, but there has never been any mention of this. Also we were informed initially that there was no will by this carer/confidant, its all very strange. We have received a copy of the will but no mention of the value of her estate, which should have been quite a bit. It's not so much the money but the thought that the poor old woman, a childless spinster, was made to sign when she was almost on her death bed makes me quite angry. Anyone had a similar experience I wonder, I'm even thinking of contesting the will as my mum is next of kin.
