Hi I am not the only relative, my father is in a nursing home and my brother has his power of attorney as unfortunately my father is completely unable to deal with anything. My younger sister is not
willing to look after my sister at all.
Telford & Wrekin Council social services have agreed that living with me is her best option
Hi what more information do you want?
No she is incapable of giving consent to a Power of Attory and incapable of managing anything.
You have to apply to the Court ofProtection to become what is known as a Deputy.
In your sister was capable of grantingconsent, then you could have applied for a lasting power of attorney, but thatis not an option in this case.
Deputy ship will then give youauthority to manage your sister's affairs in total.
There are two types, and you may wantto apply for both. Finances and also health and welfare.
Unless you know what you are doing, youmight want to get a solicitor to deal with this for you. Although there is noreason why you cannot do it yourself, the paperwork is full of pitfalls for theunwary. It takes several months (there is no shortcut) and a solicitor willcharge about £2000.
There is some reading here https://www.gov.uk/become-deputy/overview
can I help further?
Just 1more ? can I get form from court to complete asking doctor for letter of confirmation as 2 her capacity?
Thank you for getting in touch. I realise the pitfalls of going alone but unfortunately there is little funds for me to do this and go through a solicitor, so luckily have 2 daughters who have done law degrees and master so hoping we can get form from Court and go on from there.
I have had to do many forms for benefits for my sister so I know must be aware of doing things correctly.
Sorry cannot add bonus for you although I know time is money. Jacqueline
No problem. I am glad to help. I hope you get sorted. Regards
