How you deal with a parent who has
dementia and suddenly turns on you?
How do you deal with a doctor who has
written two letters saying that one or both
parents are unable to care for themselves
because of medical and mental issues, and in
the second one actually says one is
suffering from Alzheimer's, and then recants
and says that parent is now mentally sound?
When your parent had legal papers drawn up
17 years ago giving one child Power of
Attorney and naming the other Health Care
Surrogate and now decides to change her
mind, due to dementia, why is no one willing
to sit her down and explain this to her?
So now you have to go through the expense of
getting a guarantorship to enforce her
wishes when she was of sound mind?
Isn't this what all those other papers were
meant to avoid?
