I was the caretaker for my 82 year old Mom. I moved her to a room downstairs after I rented a hospital bed for her (you can get a prescription for these beds & they are medically necessary). I called my lawyer and had her come over to the house so that Mom could write a new will.
The day Mom did her new will she signed a POA (Power of Attorney) and a Medical Directive. It was a really good thing that she signed these documents !!!!
The last week in January 2007 Mom had a silent heart attack and a frontal lobe stroke. She went from the hospital directly into a nursing home.
I paid $225.00 for these documents including a house call.
It’s called Peace of Mind.
I was also on Mom’s checking account so that I could write checks.
Needless to say, my relatives are not happy that I was prepared.
