Thank you for your question.
This is indeed a worrying situation. It is quite common for the contracts of employment of people who work with the elderly to provide a prohibition on them acting as executor or attorney or from roving a legacy over a particular amount. You may want to get in touch with this person's employer.
You may also want to consider becoming your friend's attorney which would give you powers to request the will from whoever is holding it.
Happy to discuss further.
Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.

Hi
Thank you for your question.

In fact if you have concerns the appropriate way forward is to report your concerns to the Adult section of the Social Services.
This is a more appropriate way of dealing with the matter than approaching her employers which could be viewed as harassment
