Subject: RE: BS: Dementia tips for carers
I agree with Paws,

There are two Lasting Power of Attorney in the UK now, one for property and finance and one for Health and welfare, it cost me just under £1500 to do mum's,( mainly Solicitor fees!!) my brother and I share jointly but also we added my daughter and son as replacement attornies in case Tony or I were unable to fulfil our roles!

One of my clients recently had to do it for her mother who had Dementia, she completed the application on line and didn't use a solicitor, but it was very stressful. She had her mother's Dr certify that her mother was not compos mentis and I think it has gone through quite quickly.

hope that helps Tam
