I was going to start by saying 'can you believe....' but I suspect you will be more than able to believe my aunt says she can't remember signing anything about the financial arrangements in the past, however as my cousin is signing cheques and spending her money I'm sure she must have done! She is reassured by the fact they can not force her into a home using the Health & Welfare LPA. I think she wants him to continue looking after her financial affairs because she is 'out of practice' at managing bills etc. She is desperate to keep the peace (and have them continue to visit her) but I have warned her things might get a bit rocky for a while and she must insist on having sight of the paperwork she has signed. Thank God you can choose your friends! Thank you for your response.
