Did she not give you these expenses over the years?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I DID NOT WISH TO TAKE LARGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY AS SHE MAY HAVE NEEDED IT FOR MEDICIAL ASSISTANCE
LATER IN HER ILLNESS SO THERE WAS ONLY SMALL AMOUNTS RECIEVED BUT NOW I AM TOLD I CAN NOT CLAIM FOR THESE EXPENSES AFTER HER DEATH. I DONT NO IF IS FACT OR NOT.I NEVER ASKED HER FOR EXPENSES
AS I WAS JUST LOOKING AFTER NEEDS DURING ILLNESS SHE HAD NO FAMILY IN UK. I JUST APPLIED FOR POA ON HOSPITAL ADVISE.

I am afraid that the solicitor is correct.Unless she left you a gift in the Will to reflect her gratitude for what you did there is now no claim that can be made.I am sorry to have to give such bad news - please ask if you need further details
