My Family Won't let me Care for my Mother

by Shirin
(UK)

I live 2 minutes from me mother who is 90 and we get on great. I'm the youngest daughter and the older girls just shun me. Only yesterday I met with two of them who were taking her to a hospital appointment that they refused to share with me, bladder cancer, which I had originally had detected by her GP.


This is like a battle I only want the best for her but I think the other sisters are just going for brownie points. I moved me lovely mother to my village as one sister was in Devone, one in Aus, and the other too busy in Croydon. Now the the one from Auz and the one Devon have moved to Eastbourne, and want me mother to move there.

Don't you think they could have moved to Biggin Hill if they were that concerned, cash rich, no mortgage or dependents, but no they want to take her from her nice little bungalow I got for her, and she does not want to move. Gosh, this is a stressed time and all I want to do is give me mum a nice peaceful time. So, what do you think is the way forward being the youngest daughter who live 2 minutes from me mum?

Now they say they have power or attorney over her and her care. This has now made me investigate what this means, very worried. Any one in the same boat, help and advice required.
Cheers

See an Attorney

See an attorney, and if they have Power of Attorney make sure they did it legit. Power of Attorney can be challenged.
