I was having a good day – went to the creative writing class at God Neighbours, then gave a talk and q and a session during lunch where I sold 6 copies of my book, then on to crossword class.
Came home to a message from Mum’s GP saying he wanted to talk to me. Long and short – had a half hour conversation with him during which I discovered that my mother, via her solicitor, had spoken about revoking the Enduring Power of Attorney. The solicitor asked the doctor to confirm that she had the mental capacity to do this. The GP replied, in no uncertain terms that she did not have the capacity.
The conversation shook me, as I thought it might. The doctor confirmed that Mum had said to him that she didn’t want me to take over her finances. Sadly what has not been recorded is the fact that she told me, many many times that she did, and that she did NOT want social workers, or her carer to take over.
After that call, I went on lone to find a reply to my complaint to the solicitor. I’d written to complain about the £850+ bill I had to pay when they’d none no real work. I’d also queried why I was denied access to the EPA.
They fobbed me off, as I knew they would. This is the email I sent back to them, just now.
Dear Amy or Bridget
