Topic: Elder Law
Q: Why is the nursing home spending my mom’s 50 a month on bras that don’t fit without consulting it with me seeing I am her POA? They buy her bras without consulting me, buy the wrong size and tell me they don’t have to ask me!
A: You need to ask the nursing home and have a conversation with them before you think of hiring lawyer to get involved. Communication should resolve this. If they cannot buy the correct bra size, tell them you will do it for them. If your mother is incompetent, you should be able to decide who purchases her bras. Ask to speak with the director, if the staff will not address your concerns.
