Hi there, thanks.
Please can I clarify? Did he agree to pay the amount I asked by accepting the care or did he need to say he agreed to pay me that amount?
He didn't pay me in the past but he's started paying me now, since I said I would have to go back to work and stop the care if he didn't pay because it cost me several thousand pounds (he hasn't paid me for food either). He did this very begrudgingly and it literally brought a tear to his eye. He is in the palliative stage of brain cancer now, which is why I didn't kick him out. Unfortunately, I think the brain damage has made a mean streak more extreme! The Lasting Power of Attorney is in process, so I want to ask his friends who will represent him to pay me what I asked. I have friends of my own who are prepared to witness that I asked him for this money. Are his LPA representatives required to do this? Because they probably feel they should respect his decisions on the matter, even though his family support my view that he should have paid me. On several occasions, my lodger told mutual friends (whose help I enlisted to try and talk sense to him) that he would sort things out but never acted to do so. He told his LPA friend that he agreed what he is paying now but "made a face to show he was not happy".
