Hi there,As it seems your mother has lost mental capacity, we will be too late to apply for a power of attorney. Your mother is currently unwell and in rest bite so therefore you will need to apply to become a deputy. Acting as a debuty will allow you take charge of her affairs, ie important decisions, bank accounts, property etc. In order to do this you will need to apply to complete and fill in the various COP forms and also pay a fee of £365. Further detailed guidance can be found here;https://www.gov.uk/become-deputy/apply-deputyI hope this helps and please do leave positive feedback. If I can assist with anything else, please do let me know.Kind regards,
