This isn't a question, it's more of a statement. Attorneys are worth every penny!
My mom's been transferred to a Rehab Facility from the hospital and now the paperwork is starting to come in, with stuff I'm supposed to just sign.
I looked at it last night and while it seems to be written in language you can understand, she was the one who notice not all the pages were there. In other words, the contract is missing, so if I wanted to read the contract, it wasn't there.
So, I hired this woman to advocate for my mother. I signed what I could sign as a Health Care Proxy. Three papers I was advised to wait upon. I was also told different options I had and who paid for what, etc.
All I can say is GET AN ATTORNEY, they are worth all the money you will pay them. I need to spend down some money, so I used our joint checking account for that.
Do not hassle and tear your hair out over this stuff. Get an attorney. I only wish I had gotten one sooner instead of spending the week wondering and asking what was what, where was she going, etc., etc.
