I need to get Power of Attorney over my Grandmother who was just put in a nursing home by her doctor. She just came out of the hospital. This is a Temp. home for 100 days through medicare. I was told in the past by a lawyer, that I could get paperwork, to take to my Grandmother to sign so I could get Power of Attorney.
Today we talked to a lawyer, that says I have to bring my Grandmother to his office to have her sign paperwork in front of him. He doesn't seem to understand that I can't do that. My Grandmother is under 24 hour care by a nursing staff. She can't leave. The lawyer refuses to help us unless we bring her to him.My dad originally had Power of Attorney, and simply went to his lawyer, and had the paperwork drawn up and took it to my Grandmother to sign. He had no problems. He died last year which is why I now I have to get Power of Attorney. The lawyer is also giving my mom, a hard time, because my Grandmothers Will, was put in her name instead of mine. The lawyer doesn't seem to believe my mom, that the Will is legal, drawn up by another lawyer, and was signed in front of witnesses. We are out of luck and are stuck. Is there anything that can be done? We have 100 days to get things set, or the nursing home, will be asking us to remove my Grandmother from their home.
